European clothing retailer C&A is set to expand its Fashion Center headquarters in Dusseldorf to accommodate its "dynamic expansion".

The site, which houses the German headquarters of C&A Mode, European IT and logistics company RSC and C&A's Dusseldorf-based central buying organisation, has seen its employees grow from around 1,200 to approximately 1,500 over the past six years.

The company said that in the first phase, a 660 square metre conference area will be rebuilt, and t360 new parking spaces created.

In the second phase, the old conference area will be demolished and replaced with a five storey office building. The move will create 5,400 square metres of additional space, which will accommodate parts of C&A's design and buying department.

"With the expansion of the Fashion Center and the additional office space we react on the positive dynamic expansion of C&A Europe in recent years and set the course for a successful future," said C&A Europe chief marketing officer Bart Brenninkmejer.
