The campus will include a new, seven-storey building designed by Henn Architects, as well as its existing head office. Construction will start in the second quarter of 2016 and is expected to complete in 2018.
The etailer expects to have around 10,000 employees by the end of this year.
It is on track to generate €3bn (£2.1bn) in sales for the first time in 2015, after its revenue soared 42.2% year on year to €713m (£504m) in the third quarter. Its nine-month revenue of €2.1bn (£1.5bn) is already almost on a par with its full-year 2014.
