A new GM dealership in Bayside will not be able to add an extra parking lot to store cars, Community Board 11 decided by a narrow vote Monday night.
After much debate during the public hearing at Middle School 158, the board voted 19-17 to deny a pair of variances that the dealership at 214-25 Northern Blvd. had requested.
The new dealership is directly opposite the 111th Police Precinct in Bayside and features a large building on a blocklong plot of land dominated by a parking lot. A lawyer for GM said Monday night that an additional, smaller piece of property facing 215th Street was included in the original deal for the land.
The Broadway Lumberyard used to occupy the site where the new dealership has been built.
GM was seeking one variance to allow for the outdoor display of vehicles in the large parking lot that faces Northern Boulevard, the auto dealer
