The facility, which was completed in January, is scheduled to host a grand opening sale on March 22. Located on a 285-acre lot with 900 dealer parking spaces and a 500-space overflow lot, the auction is expected to feature more than 2,000 vehicles for sale at the grand opening event.
BWAE features a 10-lane facility with plasma screens in each lane to accommodate Simulcast sales, as well as a conference center, full-service cafeteria, 50,000-square-foot paint and body shop and mechanic shop. The facility also includes a dealer technology center where dealers will have access to personal computers with high-speed Internet service and fax and printing capabilities.
