SAN JUAN - Construction has begun on a Jaguar and Land Rover dealership at the southeast corner of US 83 and Stewart Rd., between Mercedes-Benz just to the north of the expressway and Audi less than half a mile east.
The dealership will open a temporary facility to begin sales in 45 days, according to Alfonso Cavazos, an owner of the three dealerships and manager of Mercedes-Benz.
They will then begin work on a permanent dealership just behind it and, when that is complete, demolish the temporary building for a parking lot.
Meanwhile, the city is hoping the dealerships — which produce city sales tax only on service, not vehicle sales — will spur the creation of other businesses, like restaurants to appeal to car-shoppers.
