Crain's reports that Fletcher Jones plans to open a new four story showroom on an empty lot at North Avenue and Bosworth Avenue near the expressway, building on current economic momentum while adding to its expansion plans, which also include a proposed Goose Island auto mall on 900 North Ogden Avenue. Designed by Gensler, the concept calls for a four-story, 95,033-square-foot showroom with a green roof (not quite enough carbon offsets, but a good start), which would be located across the street from the company's existing Mercedes-Benz showroom. Fletcher Jones originally purchased the land in 2008 and apparently has been waiting for the right time to build on a lot that's remained undeveloped for years.
