EchoPark McKinney, a 22,000 square foot pre-owned automotive dealership, will break ground this year thanks to a site plan approved by city council tonight.

The dealership already had a site plan approved, but because of recent changes to the original site plan, had to appear before council again.

Charles Garcia, a representative from Sonic Automotive, told council that the EchoPark concept was launched in Denver three years ago and as the dealerships grow in number, so does it's popularity.

“As these stores continue to grow, we are learning more about their operations and we realized that this store needs to be bigger,” Garcia said.

The dealership is owned by Sonic Automotive and will be located just south of Mercedes-Benz of McKinney, owned by the same company.

EchoPark dealerships specialize in incorporating technology into the car buying experience.
