Elite Auto Body Inc. Set To Open New Location In Newport News

NEWPORT NEWS—A vacant industrial property located at 529 J. Clyde Morris Blvd. in Newport News was recently sold for $1.2 million. The 21,845-square-foot light manufacturing (M1-Zoned) building is situated on 2.37 acres and was purchased by Haras921B, LLC from Richman Property Holdings, LLC. The property is located near Jefferson Avenue with close proximity to Oyster Point.

The Newport News City Council unanimously adopted an ordinance granting a conditional use permit to the applicant to retrofit the previous metal fabrication shop to accommodate the operation of an automobile body and paint shop.

The proposed use is consistent with the recommendations set forth in the One City, One Future 2040 Comprehensive Plan and is compatible with surrounding industrial uses. The City Council determined the proposed use will be no more impactful on the adjacent residential users than the previous use or other permitted-by-right industrial users.

The new owner, who will be doing business as Elite Auto Body, Inc., is the largest independently owned auto body collision center in Hampton Roads and currently operates five locations throughout the area. At this sixth location, Elite Auto Body will provide the following services:

  • Body repair and refinishing
  • Suspension repair
  • Laser frame measuring
  • Frame straightening
  • Pain repair
  • Paintless dent repair
  • Dent removal
  • Bumper/fender repair
  • Auto glass repair and replacement
  • Diagnostics and scanning
  • Towing

The new facility is expected to employ up to 30 people. For additional information on Elite Auto Body, visit their website.
