Barrett-Jackson’s Permanent Auction Building Nears Completion

For automotive collectors and enthusiasts, the annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale car auction is THE premier event of the year. For the past decade or so, the main auction has been held in a 120,000 square foot tent at WestWorld.

Then in January 2013, Craig Jackson made an announcement that Barrett-Jackson would be constructing a permanent auction arena on the grounds – with real bathrooms! His comment was met with great applause, as the restrooms were previously located in a separate building a short walk away from the main tent.

Bathroom jokes aside, Barrett-Jackson’s new auction arena is serious business. It’s got dozens of overhead doors for moving cars in and out efficiently. The new facility will be open in time for the 2014 Scottsdale auction, which will take place January 12th-19th.

We look forward to bringing you coverage of the 2014 Scottsdale auction and checking out the new building!
