NIMNICHT BUYS MORRISON PONTIAC

Nimnicht Chevrolet of 1550 Cassat Ave. has purchased Morrison Pontiac of 3919 Philips Highway, officials with both companies confirmed yesterday.

Lee Nimnicht, co-owner of the Chevrolet dealerships that bears his name, said that the deal was done on Sept. 27.

"We just thought it was a great opportunity to expand the Nimnicht name around town," Lee said of himself and his brother and fellow co-owner, Billie Nimnicht III.

Lee declined to disclose the purchase price, but he said the Pontiac franchise will not be at its familiar Philips Highway location for long.

Nimnicht Chevrolet has purchased a new site in The Avenues area, at U.S. 1 and Florida 9A, and will move the Pontiac dealership to that location within two years, as soon as new sales, service and parts facilities are built there. Also moving to that new site will be Nimnicht's Hummer and GMC Truck dealerships, which are now housed at the Cassat Avenue location.

The current Morrison property is leased and will be returned to its owner, Lee said.

Jon Durand, former general manager of Morrison Pontiac, now Nimnicht Pontiac, said that no jobs will be lost in the transition. About 70 employees work at the Pontiac dealership, he said.

VISITORS BUREAU MOVES TO WATER ST.

According to Ross Carrier, who handled the lease for real estate broker Trammell Crow Co. of Jacksonville, 550 Water St. has 224,000 square feet spread over 14 floors. Other tenants include the Super Bowl Host Committee, Sprint Communications and MCI. About 70 percent of the building is leased, according to Carrier.

Carrier said that the bureau was moving to obtain additional space and also to be closer to the Prime Osborn Convention Center.

Both bureau President Kitty Ratcliffe and spokeswoman Stacy Badics were in meetings yesterday and could not be reached for comment.
