Once complete, Microsoft's main campus will consist of 131 buildings with enough room to support its 47,000 existing employees and up to 8,000 more that it'll eventually hire. The project would take about five and seven years to complete. However, the software giant is not developing a new campus altogether, rather it is planning a significant modernization of its Redmond headquarters, the company told employees on Tuesday, in a post.
Microsoft says the investment will involve approximately 2,500 construction jobs and will benefit the overall Puget Sound community, which includes the Washington cities of Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, and Everett.
Once complete, the campus will have 131 buildings, compared with today's 125 buildings, and will offer workspace for the 47,000 employees who now work there, plus room for an additional 8,000 people. With the added square footage, the campus' space will be the equivalent of 180 football fields. It'll feature work areas that are divided into a series of "team neighborhoods" with plenty of natural light, an environment that Smith believes will foster the type of creativity needed for ongoing innovation in the tech industry.
A two-acre open air plaza will house running and walking trails, soccer and cricket fields, and retail space.
Microsoft says the new campus will be "built for pedestrians and bikes" with auto parking moved underground. The bridge will also tie into a forthcoming Link Light Rail station set to arrive in 2023. As a Zero Waste Certified campus we will continue to focus further on waste-reduction initiatives.
The growth plan marks a continued shift away from the car-dependent campus of the last 30 years, made possible by the 2023 arrival of a light rail line that will make travelling to and from the campus without a auto easier than ever. Microsoft writes, "And while we transform our workspace inside, we will renovate the exterior to create more opportunities to exercise, play and connect with nature for the people who work at Microsoft and those who live nearby".
