Drivers along Sunrise Boulevard near Old Auburn Road may have noticed construction activity over the past few months next to McDonald’s and a used car dealership.
The project is slated to become an additional parking and display area for the auto sales business, according to documents filed with the city’s Planning Division. Palms Auto Sales owner Johnny Chawi confirmed with The Sentinel a new parking area is in progress.
City documents show the existing Palms Auto Sales lot at 7644 Sunrise Blvd. will be combined with the adjacent vacant lot. A site plan filed with the city shows a 1,855-square-foot solar parking canopy is planned next to an existing building. The structure will be 16 feet high, plans show.
Chawi said the permit process has been difficult, but the project is moving forward. The new lot area is currently unpaved, with site work still under way.
The lot currently being developed was previously home to an all-terrain vehicle dealership, which closed several years ago.
