The 1,100-acre facility consists of 79 buildings, 19 test tracks layouts totaling 25 miles in length, and has 3,300 employees.
The site was set up in 1965, and the upgrading project started in December 2013.
The center studies material design, tire design and simulation work, while also producing prototype compound rubber and tires.
Michelin posted a video on YouTube showing the concept and the building in progress over the past couple of years.
