Tom Cook: Benny’s buys Siegen site for seventh car wash
Well-known carwash operator Benny Alford has purchased a tract on Siegen Lane just north of Perkins Road for the construction of his next automated tunnel car wash facility. Alford purchased the roughly 2.1-acre site on Oct. 8 for $775,345.20, or exactly $6 per square foot. The property was purchased from the estate of Jerome Winfield, with the deal brokered by Jim Walsh at Jim Walsh Real Estate.
The site includes about 170 feet of frontage on Siegen Lane, and it’s zoned HC1 for heavy commercial development. Alford has been the leader in the automated tunnel carwash industry for several years, with six locations in the area.
“Benny recognized this as a high-traffic corner that would be advantageous for his automated car wash operation,” says Walsh. Construction on the car wash is expected to begin within the next four months.
