Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale is a state-of-the-art showroom adjacent to Scottsdale Fashion Square. The revitalization of an existing office building made this highly desirable location the perfect setting to showcase luxury at its finest.
Challenges included structurally raising an entire floor to accommodate the service department and a car ramp that connected the second and third-floor showrooms. The building includes various sustainable resources such as onsite storage of reclaimed water used for car washing and landscaping, new HVAC units that reduce energy consumption by 25 percent, motion sensor lighting, and maximum use of recyclable and local materials to minimize fuel consumption and waste.
The dealership was designed with a hosted café and complimentary gourmet cappuccino, as well as several luxurious lounge areas. Due to the proximity of multi-family developments, the dealership operates in a manner that substantially reduces unnecessary noise.
