Nissan decided to return to their roots, at least geographically, when they broke ground this past Saturday on their new global head office in Yokohama, Japan. The city of Yokohama served as the launching pad for Japan's second largest car manufacturer over 70 years ago.
The new, 860,000 square-foot facility will be completed by October 2009 and will house close to 2,500 of the 3,000 employees currently working for Nissan. The 22-floor, 324-foot tall building will cost approximately 42 billion Yen or $350m U.S., and has been designed to mimic "a sailing ship departing for open sea."
