Zara owner Inditex is continuing to expand its facilities in Arteixo, near A Coruña in Northern Spain.

Next month the fashion group will see the start of the construction works of a new building that will house Zara’s sales and design teams.

The office building, which should be completed in two years will have a total surface area of 170,000 sqm and will require an investment of 238 million euros.

According to Inditex, the building will stand out thanks to its simple design, large open spaces, energy efficiency and sustainability.

The building will extend over five floors, with two underground levels for parking. The ground floor will be home to Zara’s pattern-making and pilot store areas; the first and second floors will be dedicated to the men’s and children’s collections, respectively, while Zara’s womenswear departments will occupy the third and fourth floors.

The concept aims to strengthen the “horizontal work dynamics between designers, pattern-makers and sales professionals, underpinned by creativity and articulated around open collaboration and communication”.

In the first 9 months of the year, Inditex increased its sales by 37 per cent, to €19.325 billion and with a few days before the presentation of its latest results, Inditex announced the appointment with immediate effect of Óscar García Maceiras as CEO.
