Over the past decade, Commerce Drive on the border of Fairfield and Bridgeport has evolved into an automotive dealership destination. The trend continues with the signing of a long-term lease of a light industrial property located at 2170 Commerce Drive in Bridgeport by British Motor Works LLC operating as Jaguar Land Rover Centre.
Jon Angel, President of Southport-based Angel Commercial LLC, announced the leasing of the half-acre property.
According to the announcement, in July of 2015, Land Rover of Milford purchased over two acres of industrial land on Commerce Drive that extended from Fairfield to Bridgeport for a new 18,752 square foot facility that will cater to the sales and service of Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles.
“The additional land will complement their planned facility and provide Jaguar Land Rover Centre with a presence on both sides of the street,” said Angel, who represented the landlord in the transaction.
Land Rover and Jaguar will join Audi, Porsche, Infiniti, Mercedes and planned Hyundai dealerships, strengthening the street as an automotive retail hub, he said. The business is expected to open within 12 months, Angel said.
The tenant was represented by Tommy Febbraio of Coldwell Banker.
