New wash coming to vacant lot - Professional Carwashing & Detailing

New wash coming to vacant lot

SANTA CLARITA, CA — As development grew and the population swelled, a prime-location corner lot sat empty — until now.

SANTA CLARITA, CA — Owner/builder Ryan Kuhns has settled a 25-year ground lease on a 2.2-acre piece of property that will house a new carwash called Dapper Dan’s. The three-year process took so much time because of economic hardship the land’s owner, NAI Capital, was experiencing as a result of the 2008 recession, reported.

The Nov. 5 story stated that construction on the wash will be starting soon, and the site sees around 53,000 cars per day. City planners wanted to be careful as to what should be built at the site, but they ultimately decided that a business that would generate jobs would be best.

Rezoning required for proposed wash/gas station

There were several other proposed plans that were all pulled during early stages of planning. These included a fast-food restaurant and a Mini Cooper dealership.

Kuhns wants to incorporate certain architectural motifs that will be unique to the wash. These include a 35-foot tower with shutters and an overall “Tommy Bahama” feel. The wash will feature $500,000 worth of state-of-the-art equipment, and a 150-foot conveyer. Washes will start at $5, and there will be commercial-grade vacuums on-site.
