Continental is favoring a location near the Pferdeturm arena in Hannover, Germany, as the site for its new headquarters. The company has now officially entered detailed negotiations about this with the city of Hannover, and is looking at acquiring two possible areas north and south of Hans-Böckler-Allee. These plots have a combined surface area of around 37,600m2 and will be structurally linked, should the headquarters be built there.
“We are planning to build our new headquarters there in the form of a modern construction with a campus-style design that facilitates communication. We will also have sufficient reserve space there, which will offer further development potential for the future,” said Dr Elmar Degenhart, chairman of the Continental executive board.
“We made the decision in favor of Hannover after carefully considering all advantages and disadvantages based on important criteria such as costs, transport links, and administrative support.”
