Online PR News – 26-September-2012 – Toronto, ON – New Toronto Kia Dealership Construction Begins: Ground-Breaking Held at Future Toronto Kia Site
September 25, 2012, TORONTO, ON—It’s not every day that the President and the VP of Kia Canada are seen holding a shovel.
Community leaders, local media and employees gathered for the Toronto Kia dealership ground-breaking event with Kia Canada President, William Lee, and Vice-President, Maria Soklis. The ground-breaking event held at Toronto Kia’s new location on the Danforth, near Woodbine at 2222 Danforth Ave., celebrates the design and construction of an innovative community dealership that is scheduled to open in early 2013.
“We’re very excited to start the construction of our new dealership and finally see the plans come to life with a unique layout and spectacular glass architecture,” said Stacey and Jordan Ison, owners of Toronto Kia. “Our Kia Danforth location will service the downtown core and East Toronto – making it a landmark downtown dealership in Toronto, Ontario and for Kia Canada.”
The new Toronto Kia, opening in early 2013, is a modern architectural design and a Canadian first for dealerships. The same architects that brought openness for the renovation at Toronto Honda, Carson Woods Inc., designed the Toronto Kia dealership.
The design is efficient and original, enhancing the business community landscape. The building will have an all-glass exterior and a rooftop lot that will feature spaces for 30 cars. A “sense of arrival” will impress visitors to the second-floor showroom and people walking by will be able to look directly through the glass into the service centre. This emphasis on community and transparent customer service aligns with Stacey and Jordan Ison’s dealer vision “Better with Brothers” - a long-time family-owned and run dealership business.
The ground-breaking event, which was held on September 25, 2012, celebrated the beginning of construction. The new dealership will feature new Kia models, including Rio, Soul, Forte, Rondo, Optima, Sedona, Sorento, and Sportage.
