Microsoft reveals plans to transform campus by 2023

Microsoft reveals plans to transform campus by 2023

"This project represents a significant investment by the company, will involve roughly 2500 construction and development jobs, and will take five to seven years to complete", Smith said.

The campus will primarily be built for pedestrian and bike traffic as all vehicles will be moved to an underground parking facility.

Microsoft also says that it wants its new campus to be more open rather than formal, and it will divide it into a set of "team neighborhoods". Apple Inc. opened its sprawling new main campus in Cupertino, California, earlier this year, while Amazon.com Inc.is now looking for a city to host a second headquarters projected to cost more than $5 billion.

"We are not only creating a world-class work environment to help retain and attract the best and brightest global talent, but also building a campus that our neighbors can enjoy, and that we can build in a fiscally smart way with low environmental impact", Microsoft President Brad Smith wrote in a blog post unveiling the expansion plans. They will surround expanses of soccer and cricket fields, running trails, and a central plaza capable of hosting farmers' markets, music performances, and up to 12,000 people for corporate events. However, it's time to grow and invest more to upgrade it so that it can become the best workplace for the 47,000 Microsoft employees who work there. Now, we can add Microsoft to the growing list of companies looking to spruce up their campus.

PixabayMicrosoft Redmond campus - what are the plans? But as its ongoing search for a second headquarters highlights in no uncertain terms, the space-constrained Puget Sound region has few large undeveloped areas appropriate for an expansion that would accommodate up to 50,000 workers-the number Amazon said it may someday employ at its HQ2. However, with the new buildings, the company plans to take a different approach. A bridge across WA-520, which will link both sides of its campus, will be for cyclists and walkers only. As a Zero Waste Certified campus we will continue to focus further on waste-reduction initiatives. The redevelopment and expansion announced Tuesday will add 2.2 million square feet and make room for up to 8,000 new employees when it is complete six to eight years from now.
