Taking Auto Dealerships in a New Direction

With twenty-two locations across North America, OpenRoad Auto Group prides themselves on taking a different approach to automotive dealerships. So they chose Wales McLelland to take their unique brand in a new direction with this all-new five-storey building at the Richmond Auto Mall. OpenRoad’s Toyota dealership was completed in 2019, featuring designs and layouts that clearly set it apart from the competition, including Hunter Douglas ceilings and perforated mesh around the two levels of roof parking.

The Largest Toyota Showroom in BC

OpenRoad Toyota Customers will find several amenities including two lounge areas to accompany a full-service café with televisions, a fireplace, and Wi-Fi access. The new vehicle showroom space will encompass more than 15,000 square feet, making it the largest Toyota showroom in British Columbia, with space to display 36 vehicles on two levels, plus 10 indoor new vehicle delivery bays.

An Advanced Service Facility

Toyota dealers have a reputation for excellent customer service, and OpenRoad Toyota will continue to demonstrate why this is so, with a 12-bay drive-through reception service, 30 full mechanical service bays, and four express service bays for routine work such as oil changes. There will also be two automatic carwashes and six detail bays.

Leading-Edge Environmental Features

Outside, the architectural design will incorporate many state-of-the-art environmental features such as a green roof and water collection system on the car wash, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, LED lighting, and more. This new facility ensures OpenRoad Toyota will continue to provide the best service experience to current and future customers in the Greater Vancouver Area.
