The project for the future corporate headquarters of Stellantis and Opel in Rüsselsheim am Main is progressing as planned: The first bidding phase for the necessary sale of space that is no longer required has now been completed.
"We have received attractive offers that confirm the potential of the areas for urban realignment, from which Rüsselsheim and we as future neighbors will benefit in the long term. We are very much looking forward to the next phase, in which we will select the economically and conceptually most attractive offer in line with the city's framework concept," said Uwe Hochschurtz, CEO of Opel Automobile GmbH, which, like the German headquarters of Stellantis, is based in Rüsselsheim is based on the Main. "Our planned modern, green campus is another important step towards becoming a CO2 - neutral company."
The tender for the planned CO2 - neutral campus will take place in a separate bidding process, starting in the second half of the year.
Stellantis and Opel rely on a constructive dialogue with the city of Rüsselsheim in the further implement the project - even if this is no longer part of the bidding process for the areas for sale: "Stellantis and, above all, Opel belong to Rüsselsheim. Of course, we need to pull together this project in the future. After all, it offers an enormous opportunity for further development for us and the city," said Uwe Hochgeschurtz.
Overall, the cooperation with an external investor means that investments in the three-digit million range are expected - a clear commitment to the future of the Rüsselsheim site.
In the autumn of last year, Stellantis and Opel announced that they wanted to set up a CO 2 -neutral campus in Rüsselsheim am Main. The next bidding phase that has now started is to be concluded in the summer, and the sale of the areas will then take place this year.
