Team Auto Group will build call center, offices in downtown Salisbury
SALISBURY — Team Auto Group, with locations in Salisbury, Swansboro and Goldsboro, announced Friday that it will renovate two downtown buildings to build a call center as well as accounting and executive offices.
A news release said Team Auto Group will spend more than $400,000 to renovate buildings at 316 and 322 Depot Street in downtown Salisbury. The company will also create 19 full-time jobs by the end of 2020.
The buildings to be renovated are located near the historic Salisbury Station and in the same block as Lee Street theatre.
“We are thrilled to be a part of such an active and beautiful downtown” said Team Auto Group Principal Kristin Dillard. “All of us at Team Auto Group are thankful to the City of Salisbury and to the State of North Carolina for their support of this project. We are so appreciative of the guidance and support that we have received from the Rowan EDC.”
Team Auto Group will partner with L.S. Bradshaw Real Estate, owners of the property, to redevelop the building. Chris Bradshaw, manager of Bradshaw Real Estate, said turning old warehouses into vibrant office space has been a good experience.
In Salisbury, Team Auto runs a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealership on Jake Alexander Boulevard.
Team Auto received support from the Salisbury City Council in the form of a commitment to provide $10,000 to local match for Rural Building Reuse Grant funds. The city applied for the grant on behalf of Team Auto Group.
“This is exactly the type of economic development and historic reuse project we seek that contributes to the revitalization of Downtown Salisbury,” Mayor Al Heggins said. “And so I’d like to extend a warm welcome to Team Auto Group to our Depot Street.”
