McGrath Acura of Downtown Chicago

  • Description:

    The Missner Group was the general contractor for the construction of the new 57,550 square foot McGrath Acura of Chicago dealership located at 1301 N. Elston Avenue in Chicago. This was the first location for Acura within the City of Chicago. 

    The Missner Group implemented the final plan, a 47,000 square foot renovation of the existing facility and a 10,550 square foot addition.

    The extensive renovations to the existing site included the addition of a new Acura service center, parts department and car wash. The service center features three drive-in service lanes and 21 service bays.

    The Missner Group also built-out seven private offices for the service manager and advisors. The glass-enclosed offices have been designed to look out over the service area to maximize workflow and productivity.

    The 10,550 square foot addition included a dramatic new car showroom, service reception area and mezzanine with a catwalk. The addition features many state-of-the-art enhancements and high-end finishes including two towers with the iconic Acura logo, a café, a television lounge with a fireplace, and a Zen room. The luxury dealership also includes a dramatic, two-story glass and metal paneled new car showroom which is accentuated by a large skylight allowing for an abundance of natural lighting and scenic views.

    The Missner Group incorporated numerous sustainable improvements to the property including the implementation of a vegetative roof and the utilization of permeable pavers for the parking lot. The pavers reduced the impervious area of the project and allow for storm water management in keeping with the City of Chicago’s best management practices as well as create a walkway which extends along the Chicago River to an outdoor patio and sitting area where an ornamental fence will frame the property.
