Hanlees Davis Toyota razes old dealership to make way for a new facility

A local car dealership is demolishing its outdated showroom to make way for a modernized, and brand-stylized, customer experience in a new building.

Hanlees Davis Toyota, which is part of a family-owned group of dealerships, sells new or used Toyota and Scion vehicles — and at one time also Chevy, but no longer — at 4202 Chiles Road in South Davis.

“The prior building was built back in the ’60s, so it was pretty dated,” said Chris Harty, service director at the dealership. “The new building will have state-of-the-art everything.

“It’s also being built by Toyota’s specifications, so it will all be in the style of which they design dealerships.”

The old facility was expected to be completely torn down by Thursday, according to Harty. The demolition debris then was to be sorted for recycling.

“If someone comes by they’ll see everything organized into neat little piles of glass, metal, stone, brick and all that,” he explained.

Harty added that the construction crew would break ground on the front end of the remodeled dealership sometime next week.

In the meantime, the sales department has temporarily relocated down the street — to the old Hanlees Ford dealership at 5000 Chiles Road. The service desk will operate out of trailers at the original Hanlees Davis Toyota location.

Harty could not provide an estimate of how much the remodeling project will cost, but said it should be completed by mid-November.
