In June, Continental signed a MoU with the city of Hannover, Germany to secure the site for its planned new corporate headquarters. The company is now moving forwards with the next phase of the project – according to the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung, 14 German and European architectural firms have been commissioned to develop concepts for a “creative head office.” The newspaper comments that rather than adopt a standard design, Continental seeks a solution that reflects the company’s foci on sustainability and innovation.

A jury is expected to decide upon the proposals in April. The project, which should be completed in 2020, will involve a “high double-digit million” investment. The new headquarters will accommodate around 1,250 employees.
