Three months ago, I attended the grand opening of the Lexus Downtown dealership in Toronto and was very impressed by the facilities — so much so, that I decided to set up a visit for a photo shoot with the long-term GS 350.
Spanning over 108,000 square feet and six floors, the dealership boasts a number of nice features — let’s start take a little photo tour, starting with the showroom.
There’s also a vehicle delivery area on the third floor, where new Lexus owners are brought for a tour of their new vehicle:
I had requested use of the delivery area for the GS photo shoot, so all the vehicles were moved to one end of the room:
Another stand-out feature of the dealership is the large customer lounge, also on the third floor:
Had to take a close-up photo of the bar lights:
The lounge not only gives Lexus Downtown a spot to entertain guests waiting for service, but also the opportunity to host community events (the dealership is involved with Toronto General Hospital and is a big supporter of the Toronto arts).
As expected with a Lexus dealership, the service area is spotless — located on the second floor, all fourteen service bays are super-clean and well-appointed:
Because space is at a premium in downtown Toronto, the pre-owned vehicles are located in the basement:
Definitely a great looking dealership, but it’s the people that made my visit special — thank you to everyone at Lexus Downtown for their hospitality, especially the dealership principal Shahin Alizadeh and the general manager James Coats.
Check back tomorrow for my GS photo shoot — all non-watermarked photos in this story were supplied by Lexus Downtown.
