The Atlanta Business Chronicle recently reported that Jim Ellis is planning to build an all new Volkswagen dealership in Chamblee. While typically a Volkswagen dealership wouldn’t make a lot of news, what makes this dealership special is that it will include a Jim Ellis Automotive Museum and corporate headquarters.
The all new dealership building will be built next door to the current Jim Ellis VW on Peachtree Blvd. The building will be 4 stories and 100,000 square feet. A parking deck will also be included.
The first two levels will be dedicated to the dealership. The third floor will include a Jim Ellis Museum and exhibit. The space will also include special event space for Jim Ellis. Jim Ellis’ corporate headquarters will be located at the 4th floor.
The museum is expected to include a collection of cars. The Jim Ellis Automotive group is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary.
