The 230,000-square-foot facility will be home to nearly 600 team members with capacity to continue growing. Team members will begin occupying the building located at 3400 New Hyde Park Road in early July. The company is committed to remaining in Long Island with a 17-year lease.
Dean Tilsley, senior vice president of Finance and Operations, Dealertrack said: "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.
"As we have grown over the years, we have done so with an unwavering commitment to the Long Island metro area. 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."
Dealertrack develops software solutions for the automotive retail market that support open choice and are designed to transform the way vehicles are bought and sold for consumers, dealers, manufacturers and lenders.
The company's products drive efficiency throughout the entire purchasing journey, including online shopping, dealership operations, customer relationship management, financing, insurance and e-contracting.
Dealertrack was acquired in October 2015 by Cox Automotive, a global company with nearly 33,000 team members in more than 200 locations, and home to some of the most recognized brands in the automotive industry including Autotrader®, Kelley Blue Book®, Manheim®, NextGear Capital®, vAuto®, Xtime® and others.
The 10-acre LEED-specified headquarters 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 served as construction manager for the project and partnered with Castagna Realty to act jointly as real estate developers. Spector Group is responsible for the building envelope and Combined Resources designed the interior spaces.
Marvin Natiss, Mayor, Village of North Hills said: "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."
