A future car dealership and outparcels are slated for some vacant land in Orlando.
Christopher A. Holler, vice president for the Holler-Classic Automotive Group, filed an application for the proposed project on 9.1 acres across two parcels at 3801 and 4053 L.B. McLeod Road. The property would include the proposed dealership over 7.1 acres and the potential for two 1-acre outparcels.
Winter Park-based Great American Land Management is listed as the purchaser of the site, while First Baptist Church Orlando Campus Inc. is the current owner.
The church bought the 8.23-acre property at 3801 L.B. McLeod Road in 2000 for $3.2 million, and the 0.87-acre property at 4053 L.B. McLeod Road for $400,000 in 1989. The site currently hosts overflow for the church and a retail building.
Great American Land Management is seeking to change the growth management plan for the site to allow for the planned dealership. A tentative meeting on the change is projected to occur in November.
Great American Land Management, Holler-Classic Automotive Group and First Baptist Church of Orlando were not available for comment.
