PONTIAC — Pontiac-based construction services firm Auch Co. announced that it has started construction of the M1 Concorse, an automotive enthusiast destination at Woodward Avenue and South Boulevard, only a half mile from its headquarters location since 1985.
“Other than the obvious excitement of being involved in such a large scale project, the fact that the M1 Concourse has potential to inspire future development in Pontiac is very meaningful to us given that AUCH has been a longtime member of this community,” said Auch president Vince DeLeonardis.
M1 Concourse is located on an 87 acre historic site, at the entrance to the city of Pontiac; the redevelopment was formerly occupied by General Motors. Phase I will be completed in the spring of 2016 and will include the construction of 80 private garages which are already sold, and a 1.5 mile performance track for automotive testing, training, and marketing purposes.
Phase II will consist of 57 private garages ranging in size from 600 to 2,400 square feet. They’ll sell from roughly $125,000 to $500,000.
At the completion of this mixed use development the Pontiac location will be one of the largest automotive enthusiast destinations in North America with more than 250 private garages, restaurants, an automotive themed shopping village, office space and exhibition areas for car shows, swap meets, auctions and more.
