We wrote here a week or so ago about the hot commercial real estate market for expanding auto dealerships.

Minneapolis-based RJM Construction said Monday it has been selected by Carousel Motor Group to build a new facility for its Porsche of Minneapolis dealership.

The new structure will be located at 9595 Wayzata Blvd. in Golden Valley, basically on the parking lot of the existing location. (Which will remain open during construction.)

The 31,000-square-foot building will include an expanded showroom and repair shop, feature an exterior metal facade, a cutain wall system and interior finishes with Porsche's "signature colors."

Construction is slated to begin in October, with completion planned for July 2015.

“Working with RJM, we looked at both remodeling and expanding the existing facility versus building a new one. Ultimately, building new allowed us to minimize the disruption to our business and gave us more flexibility with planning our new space,” said Jay Hulbert, president, Carousel Motor Group, in a statement.

Minneapolis-based Baker Associates is the project architect.RJM has previously worked with Carousel Motor Group to build a new facility for North Branch Chevrolet in 2013.
