With the help of family, city officials and business associates, Michael Hohl tossed the ceremonial shovel of dirt to officially break ground Tuesday morning on his new Honda and Subaru dealerships on South Carson Street.
“This is a real exciting time for us,” Hohl said, flanked by his wife, Karen. “A lot of you know we’ve been working on this for almost 10 years, and putting it together is a real thrill.”
The 7.5-acre parcel between Les Schwab Tires and Michael’s Cycle Works will hold a 25,000-square-foot Honda showroom and service facility, and a 20,000-square-foot Subaru dealership. They will replace the six-acre facility on North Carson Street.
