Moss Motors is holding a ground-breaking Wednesday at 2 p.m. for its new, $9.7 million Mercedes-Benz dealership.

The Moss group of dealerships also includes BMW and Honda, both located on Surrey Street along with its existing Mercedes-Benz luxury line.

The new facility is being constructed on a five-acre site at 6200 Johnston St., next to Rouses Supermarket. Part of the Mercedes-Benz Autohaus design, the all-new concept will feature an expanded service and sales area.

Triad Construction Services is the contractor, and P├ęcot & Company Architects is designing the facility. The anticipated opening will be in the fourth quarter of 2017.
