Budget: $12M Status: Design development Client: City: Nissan & Hyundai
City Nissan and Hyundai is the second stage development following on from Yarra Honda which Ardent's director designed in 2007. The new facility will be a state of the art automotive sales and servicing facility over 4 levels. The facility is designed to integrate with Yarra Honda by marrying functions on each level to each other. The result will be a complete facility with 3 franchises and 40 workshop bays.
The design addresses the issue of automotive retailing in a CBD context in Australia. Due to the expense of land inner city the traditional model of acres of cars on asphalt is unfeasible.
