Aurburn Great American Automotive Service Center

Auburn, Washington

15,000 s.f.; Cost: 1.5M – 2.5M

Role: Design Architect for the DeRose Corporation - Developer

This is a DeRose Corporation and Great American Auto Care w/ Car Wash. It is located in the South Metropolitan area of Seattle. Unlike other Developments by DeRose, this project was only a Great American Tire and Auto Care plus an attached Car Wash. The City did not allow a stand alone Car Wash Building and because the ‘C’ Store was already there, it had to be attached to the Great American making it unique to the other developments.
