An Irving church has purchased an Airport Freeway automobile dealership which it plans to renovate into a new worship center. South MacArthur Church of Christ Inc. bought the 4-building Goodson Acura dealership at 1750 E. Airport Freeway. The 12-acre property has more than 73,000 square feet of buildings. The 50,000-square-foot main sales building will be converted into a chapel. Goodson Acura is consolidating its operations to its location on Lemmon Avenue in Dallas. The auto retailer will continue to lease two service center buildings at the back of the property. “To make the building work for a church, substantial renovations will be required,” said Joe Santaularia of Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services who brokered the sale with Bob Ginsburg of CBRE Group. The renovation is expected to take about three months. The church now leases space at 1400 W. Grauwyler Road.
