Dolan Lexus

The Dolan Lexus Dealership is changing the way people think about buying a new car. The €flagship store in Reno is a true collaboration between MBA Architecture + Interior Design, the Dolan Auto Group and Clark/Sullivan Construction. The shared vision was to offer the best customer experience by providing amenities such as a coffee bar, lounge areas, a business center, and a concierge. A rain curtain water feature, sculptural chandelier, monumental staircase and a modern fireplace are other signature elements of the dealership. We wanted customers to feel like they arrived at a hotel and they were special guests. The dealership boasts a second floor demonstration showroom and outdoor terrace that can also be used for private functions and community events.

The dealership maintains 36 service bays, including 4 lube pits, a car wash, and three detailing bays. A great deal of planning was put into the number and location of the various spaces to provide a productive flow of services and to minimize customer wait times. Other back-of-house spaces such as a training room, conference room, break room, photo room and MDF data center provided other functional spaces for both their dealership and online sales.
