A multi-use commercial development with 13 automotive dealerships plus retail stores and restaurants could be coming to a 55.6-acre site along Interstate 4 in western Volusia County.
County planners are reviewing the planned development, called I-4 Automall, which would include about 500,000 square feet of space for its automotive component alone.
Each of the automotive dealerships would be 30,020 square feet in size. They would store vehicles and parts at a shared distribution center that may be six stories tall.
The I-4 Automall also could have as much as 60,000 square feet of office space over retail space or, alternatively, a 90-room hotel.
The developer would need approval from the Volusia County Planning and Land Development Regulation Commission and the Volusia County Council to build I-4 Automall.
The developer is Chrysler Jeep dealer Brandon Hurley, and the location of I-4 Automall would be a 16-parcel site with a patchwork of zoning and land-use designations.
Hurley has formed a company, 14 Automall LLC, that is assembling the parcels under its ownership and planning to re-plat them into a single tract and obtain a uniform zoning designation for it. [The West Volusia Beacon] – Mike Seemuth
