What up fellow Planners!
I have just a quick question to ask of you all...
Has anyone ever heard of used-car lots being aggregated together in the way that new-car dealerships are to form "one-stop shop" "mega-malls?" No large corporate constructions - just smaller "ma and pop" dealerships congregated together under a single management, banners, etc.
I work for an architecture/urban design firm currently writing guidelines for a city with many such uses scattered along a dilapidated, and underutilized strip, and we believe such an idea just might work there to spark ultimate revitalization, or at the very least; aesthetic improvement.
Any related project or city names or even just solid leads would be very much appreciated - up until now I have found nothing.
Thank you in advance!
