Redline Design Group

Nissan of Monroe

Indian Trail, NC

This dealership was constructed on a heavily wooded 11-acre site adjacent to a four-lane highway. Wetlands and a jurisdictional stream crossed the site and created a challenge in developing the site to maximize the site parking while minimizing the impacts on the regulated waters. Benesch was up to the challenge and developed a site plan that allowed for the construction of the 34,000 SF building and over 325 parking spaces. An important site design issue was how to make the entrance to the facility easily identifiable for customers approaching on the busy, high speed highway. Benesch designed an entrance feature with brick pylons, attractive hardscape and landscape material, which creates an identifiable and inviting entrance to the dealership. Benesch also designed public water and sewer main extensions to the facility, as well as turn lanes on the NCDOT highway.
