JGPCO and Bennett Toyota/Scion Break Ground on LEED-Certified Dealership

"JG Petrucci Co. (JGPCO) has begun construction on a new auto dealership in Allentown, PA, for Bennett Toyota/Scion, located at the end of the "Lehigh Street Auto Mile."

The new 46,130-square-foot facility will consist of a showroom, service center, parts department, body shop and associated retail uses. The state-of-the-art, LEED-certified facility will be the first of its kind in the Mid-Atlantic region for Toyota.

The dealership is being built on the site of a former Exide Battery plant. The brownfield property, which JGPCO purchased in 2005, was then taken through the Act 2 voluntary clean-up process with Pennsylvania DEP.

Greg Rogerson, a principal at JGPCO, said, "This is an exciting project and one that will eventually create more than 150 jobs."
