Frank Ancona Honda expansion snags incentives from Olathe

Frank Ancona Honda will expand its dealership in Olathe with the help of tax increment financing.

At a Tuesday meeting, the Olathe City Council unanimously approved the development tool to help with the dealership’s $5.9 million expansion. The TIF will redirect increases in property taxes to offset about $1 million worth of eligible project costs.

The expansion will add 31,000 square feet to the dealership showroom, making it 50,812 square feet in all.

It also will increase the size of the parking lot and improve infrastructure on the property, which is at at 1000 N. Rogers Road.

Ancona plans to work with Lenexa-based Davidson Architecture & Engineering for civil planning and architecture, with Miller-Stauch Construction Co. Inc. of Kansas City, Kan., as contractor and Polsinelli Shughart PC of Kansas City, Mo., as legal counsel.
