May 10, 2024 – Skullcandy Headquarters Purchase, Bidding Open for County Surplus Vehicles + Tons of Community Engagement Opportunities!


  • Council’s approval of an agreement for the purchase of the Skullcandy headquarters building
  • Bidding is now open for County Surplus Vehicles
  • A TON of community engagement opportunities happening now


On Thursday, May 9, the Summit County Council voted to approve the execution of an agreement for the purchase of the Skullcandy headquarters building for $17.5 million using sales tax bonds. Located at 6301 North Landmark Drive in Park City, the 7.38-acre property includes a 45,000 square-foot building with dedicated parking areas. The purchase agreement represents the culmination of a widely marketed sales process by the building’s owners, an affiliate of Dakota Pacific Real Estate. 

County Council Chair, Malena Stevens, said in a quote: “Summit County has worked for years to identify a suitable location for a new county facility in the Snyderville Basin. The Council has explored options to acquire an existing property such as the Skullcandy headquarters compared to the cost feasibility of building a new facility. Existing infrastructure may best serve our community in a more fiscally responsible manner.”   

The approved agreement means Summit County will inherit Skullcandy’s lease agreement. The County Council intends to explore potential modifications to the lease with Skullcandy to facilitate shared use of the building to allow for County specific uses. To fund the purchase, the County will pledge its existing sales tax revenues to pay off bonds issued. The County Council does not intend to impose additional taxes or increase sales taxes to acquire the property.  

There is no definitive timeline on when Summit County will move into the space or what services and amenities will be located there. While the Skullcandy property is not included in the proposed Dakota Pacific project, the property could become part of a larger public-private partnership in the area. There are no plans to relocate the County Seat from the courthouse in Coalville to this facility.
