Hamilton Nissan has moved to a new building that consolidates the auto dealership's business under one roof.

The dealership moved earlier this month to 1929 Dual Highway, near the Interstate 70 interchange, said President Rick Hamilton.

At Hamilton's previous location at 261 Frederick St. the dealership operated out of five buildings with a total of about 35,000 square feet, Hamilton said.

The Dual Highway location has 49,000 square foot under one roof.

The change was needed so the state's oldest Nissan dealership can grow, he said.

"We wanted to grow and stay viable," he said.

The larger space has enabled the dealership to increase the number of employees from 53 to 61 in the last few months. That number eventually could reach 70, he said.

Hamilton said he was involved in the design of the new building, which has a more open look.

"It is very open and customer friendly," he said.

The building is glass so customers can see much of the lot without leaving the office, he said. Customers who want to watch while their vehicles are being serviced can do so in the air-conditioned building.

"The place is so open they feel comfortable," Hamilton said.

The move was effective April 2. A grand opening will be held next week.
