Matt McKay, owner of All Star Automotive, bought out his partners’ interest in property on Airline Highway and Pecue Lane on Wednesday for a combined $1.7 million. McKay plans to relocate All Star’s Hyundai and Genesis dealership to the site. McKay will then update the current Hyundai and Genesis dealership for used car sales.
McKay and partners John Noland Sr., John Noland Jr. and Scott Hickson have owned the property for years, McKay says, and he bought their interests after deciding he wanted to build.
The site is around 5 to 6 acres and is developed, he says. He is now working on planning, zoning and how large the dealership will be. He wants to relocate the dealership there because of the location, he says, as it’s near the interstate and across the street from Woman’s Hospital.
Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Matt McKay is planning to build a second Hyundai and Genesis dealership on the recently purchased property. McKay is not building a new dealership, but relocating an already existing dealership. Daily Report regrets the error.
