After serving Colorado Springs for nearly 50 years on Circle Drive, Winslow BMW of Colorado Springs moved to a new location just east of Interstate 25 at the base of Pulpit Rock. The nearly 40,000-square-foot dealership features a larger showroom, service area, and parts department—bringing Winslow BMW and its goal of serving the Pikes Peak Region into the 21st century.
Central Bancorp, particularly its Central Bank & Trust division, created a financing package that enabled the relocation and expansion of the Winslow family’s dealership in 2015. “We appreciated the opportunity to work with a local bank and feel like Central Bank & Trust became a part of our family,” expressed Phil and Ann Winslow. “Our business is about creating legacies and opportunities for our community and working with a local banking partner helps to keep Colorado Springs prosperous.”
The North Nevada Avenue corridor, where the new Winslow BMW facility is located, is an urban renewal center, with neighbors UCCS and the University Village shopping center also investing in this area.
Winslow BMW’s roots in Colorado Springs extend back to 1960 when the Winslow family purchased a Volkswagen dealership. In 1983, the family added the BMW brand and called the dealership Winslow Volkswagen-BMW. After selling the Volkswagen portion of the dealership, it has been known as Winslow BMW of Colorado Springs.
“We were looking for an energetic, more convenient location, and we are very pleased that Central Bank & Trust is a continuing partner in our success,” says Phil Winslow. “They offer a quality that I feel you just can’t get with other lenders.”
