JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -

The Jefferson City Council approved a proposal to rezone nine acres for a new car dealership Monday night.

Corwin Automotive Group is planning to build a 30,000 square foot facility in the 3600 block of Missouri Boulevard. The facility will include a service department and detail shop.

The dealership told ABC 17 News it would move its current Honda dealership to the new location. The Nissan franchise will then move into the old Honda building.

Corwin has recently been storing inventory at the Capital Mall because it doesn't have enough space.

In 2005, a mixed-use development was planned and in 2008, a 103-room Holiday Inn was proposed for the site. Neither of those plans materialized.
