CRYSTAL LAKE – Crews from Site Recovery Services continued demolition work this week at the future home of Anderson Motor Co., 5213 Route 14, Crystal Lake.

Anderson Motor Co. plans to build a 30,494-square-foot sales and service center at the site of former Conlon Collins Ford building.

Anderson Motor Co. will relocate its Volkswagen operations from its dealership on Route 31. It’s set to open either late this year or early next year.

Crystal Lake has pledged the company up to $1 million through a sales-tax incentive deal to help with the project.

The former Conlon Collins Ford building has been vacant since 2007. After a change in ownership, it was briefly called Extreme Ford.

Anderson Motor Co. bought the property in 2011.
