In 2005 Bridgestone began looking at renovating an existing building for their Technology Center and determined after studying the parameters that it was not cost effective to retrofit and therefore decided to look for a new site within their campus. The existing building that they had hoped to use, the Harvey Firestone Building, is still in service at this time for making racing tires. The new Technology Center is located on the corner of South Main Street and Firestone Boulevard in Akron, Ohio on the existing Firestone campus. Across the street from the new Technology Center on South Main is the location of the new parking structure that has just been completed. It will be accessible to the new Technology Center via an enclosed foot bridge.
