Foundation Auto plans Hyundai dealership in Broomfield

BROOMFIELD — Foundation Automotive Corp., a Houston-based chain of car dealerships with a handful of operations in Colorado, is planning a Hyundai sales and service center in Broomfield.

Plans for the dealership, which are expected to be reviewed by the Broomfield City Council this week, call for a 24,000-square-foot building on about 3.5 acres at 4101 Industrial Lane.

The plan is likely to face more scrutiny than other, similarly sized development applications due to the type of use and location within the city.

According to a letter to Broomfield planners from the applicant, “The front showroom of the structure will be designed with two story high efficiency glazing that will allow natural daylight to penetrate deep within the structure; limiting the usage of artificial lighting. The southern exposure will also allow for substantial heat gain during the winter when the sun is lower in the sky, and the showroom is equipped with deep overhangs to help block the solar gain in the summer when the sun is higher in the southern sky.”Foundation has Boulder Valley dealerships in Westminster and Boulder.
