CAPALABA mainstay Bartons Holden - a landmark at Capalaba for the past 28 years - will be rebuilt from scratch after demolition begins later this month.
Dealer principal Michael Atkinson said Bartons Holden's operations would be relocated to neighbouring sites from Friday, March 15, with demolition set to begin in the next two weeks.
The new facility would combine the Holden dealership with Bartons Hyundai which operates from the building next door.
Mr Atkinson said the new complex would house sales, service and parts for both Holden and Hyundai and works were scheduled for completion in late 2019.
"The new building will give our customers state of the art servicing and sales facilities that we only get to see once every 20 years," he said.
"For us it's important that we do it right and we cater for everyone's needs."
Mr Atkinson said Bartons would also be relocating Cleveland Nissan to Capalaba.
"It will... give people five of Australia's top 10 brands in one site," he said.
"We've got local builders and demolition crews so we'll be putting money back into the local community."
Bartons Holden, formerly known as Oldfield Holden, was opened in 1991, before much of Capalaba's CBD, including Capalaba Central shopping centre and Capalaba Town Centre, was built.
It was bought by Bartons in 2015.
While Bartons Holden was being redeveloped, the service department would be located at the neighbouring Bartons Hyundai Service Centre.
The new car sales department will operate from temporary facilities on the Bartons Holden site.
Used car sales will operate from 98 Redland Bay Road.
