In celebration of its new headquarters in Long Island’s Village of North Hills, Dealertrack was set to hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday afternoon for the project’s team members and contributors with state and local officials.
The 10-acre LEED-specified headquarters with a 230,000-square-foot facility is set to be home to roughly 600 team members early next month.
“When Dealertrack originally announced the new building plan three years ago, it was a vision driven by our team members to have a work environment that inspired innovation and collaboration, and overall health and wellness in the workplace,” Dealertrack senior vice president of finance and operations Dean Tilsley said in a news release. “As we have grown over the years, we have done so with an unwavering commitment to the Long Island metro area.”
With a 17-year lease, Dealertrack is committed to remaining in Long Island, according to the company.
“As mayor, I welcome Dealertrack to the Village of North Hills. I am pleased to participate in the ceremonial ribbon cutting for the state-of-the-art building that will serve as the headquarters for this fine company,” Village of North Hills Mayor Marvin Natiss said in the release.
The new facility features indoor basketball and volleyball courts, a cafe, cardio room and yoga studio, indoor and outdoor dining areas, game rooms and a walking trail.
TRITEC Real Estate Company, which served as construction manager for the project, partnered with Castagna Realty as the new headquarters' real estate developers.
“TRITEC Development, LLC, in partnership with Castagna Realty, is proud to have conceived and created this landmark headquarters facility, providing a cutting-edge, amenity-rich environment that will allow Dealertrack to continue to build one of Long Island's most talented teams in the tech industry,” TRITEC Principal Jim Coughlan said.
We appreciate the cooperative efforts of the Village of North Hills, as well as the empowering investments from both the New York State Empire State Development Corp. and the Nassau County IDA; this structure stands as testimony to the success of the public investment in local economic development.”
Spector Group oversaw the building envelope and Combined Resources designed the interior spaces, according to Dealertrack.
“For 51 years, Spector Group has built many landmarks on Long Island. Dealertrack joins the architectural landscape as an icon at the gateway to the Long Island peninsula,” said Spector Group Principal Marc Spector. “It is a fresh, unique design for Long Island and the tri-state area. We believe this design reflects the energy and growth of Dealertrack and we're delighted to be adding such a distinctive structure to Long Island's rich architectural legacy.”
The new headquarters is located at 3400 New Hyde Park Road in New Hyde Park, N.Y.
“We are proud to offer our team members a state-of-the-art facility where they can continue to develop solutions that are changing the way the world buys and sells vehicles, and also contributes to local economic prosperity,” Tilsley added.
