Back in October of 1989, Gene Kowalis opened the doors to one of the first Lexus dealerships just down the road from where the current Lexus of Orland rests on 159th Street. In 2006, Lexus of Orland Park moved to 8300 W. 159th Street, where it currently resides and has seen minimal changes over the past 13 years. Until now.
