Hickory continues to be a part of the Harper Family of Dealerships expansion with the construction of the new Harper Fiat showroom on Parkside Drive in West Knoxville. Construction began in December and was completed in May. The day construction finished the doors opened for business, and by June’s ribbon cutting it had already sold more cars than all the other Tennessee Fiat dealerships combined.
The building features a voluminous interior with expansive glass, exposed structure and accent walls painted “Heartthrob” red and a runway of white floor tile, mirrored by the curving soffit above. The Parts Department has room to grow with potential mezzanine storage in the future. The facility also features an enclosed service drop off, two wash bays and two service bays with room for expansion.
Below is a time-lapse video of the construction.
