Originally a Lexus showroom, Porsche Cincinnati North at Kings Auto Mall has undergone several renovations and upgrades with Elevar. The latest upgrade involved updating the 23,000 SF dealership to the current brand standards, which included a complete update to all interior finishes as well as the interior layout. To comply, the existing service drive canopy and showroom were required to be demolished and rebuilt from the foundation up, while the existing office mezzanine and service garage would remain open and receive new finishes and lighting upgrades. The new 6,000 SF showroom and service drive also needed to be attached to the existing structure, which presented some design challenges.
The new showroom design incorporates a new silver ACM fascia, black horizontal metal wall panels, high speed overhead doors, exterior signage, a 16'x26' skylight, and structural glazing. Some of the special interior features include an 8'x12' video wall, Hunter Douglass linear metal ceiling, luminous fabric ceiling in the new car delivery room, porcelain ceramic tile and butt glazing throughout the interior offices. All lighting in the showroom and service bays is LED, which provides a high quality light while being energy efficient. All furnishing are also new per the brand standards. The dealership also includes new EV charging stations inside and out to comply with the electric vehicle portion of the Porsche brand requirements.
