Ourisman Volkswagen of Bethesda will move its showroom from Tenleytown to the five-story, 140-unit apartment under construction at 7001 Arlington Rd., the former site of a U.S. Post Office.

According to the dealership’s website, the showroom is set to open in March 2015. The dealership’s service facility will remain nearby at 5414 Butler Road, with a free shuttle service provided.

The Post Office was closed in 2012 and demolished in 2013. It will include an underground parking garage with 211 spaces and bring a new traffic signal that will go at the intersection of Arlington Road and the north entrance to the Bradley Boulevard shopping center.

The Ourisman showroom will join Euro Motorcars Bethesda, which is just across Arlington Road.
