First Selectman Beth Heller visited the Crest Lincoln of Woodbridge dealership on Wednesday September 11 to see plans for the dealership’s new showroom.
The building will be modified to Lincoln Motor Company’s new design standards in a style called Vitrine. Plans were drawn up by local architect Jay Alpert and the project will total $2- $2.5 million. The dealership will remain open during construction.
“Once we’re done this will be a leading-edge showroom, almost a museum space,” said owner Dick Fitzpatrick. The showroom’s footprint will change very little but the exterior will be all new and the areas where customers interact with staff will all have a fresh look and feel.
It is expected that the project will be completed in late winter/early spring of 2020.
