Microsoft plans a multibillion-dollar overhaul of the Redmond campus, developing 18 new buildings by the end of 2024, its biggest physical expansion after more than a decade.
The massive redesign will begin next year and encompasses 18 new buildings, $150 million in transportation infrastructure improvements, and almost 7 million square feet of renovations to existing workspace, Microsoft said. Microsoft estimates the project could take up to seven years to complete and will involve the creation of roughly 2,500 construction and development jobs. Microsoft now employs 47,000 at its Redmond headquarters. "When this project is complete, our main campus will be comprised of 131 buildings - including the equivalent of 180 [American] football fields of new and renovated space". Under the plan, the company will tear down 12 of the buildings now used by employees and build 18 new facilities in their place that are expected to be up to twice as tall. The campus will be divided into "team neighborhoods", which I imagine turns every single day into a corporate retreat team-building exercise.
The plan seeks to demolish up to 12 buildings and make room for an additional 18, which will also be taller (four floors, as opposed to two or three) and be based around more open spaces, meant to encourage collaboration between colleagues.
As our employees create the tools and services of the future workspace for our customers, it's important they have a campus that reflects that future for themselves.
The campus remodel will be built for pedestrians and bikes with all cars in an underground parking facility. The new design also features a community space for 8,000 to 12,000 people in an open-air plaza and outdoor areas including running and walking trails, sports facilities and green spaces. It will all connect seamlessly with the Redmond Technology Transit Station, which will ferry passengers by light rail to downtown Bellevue and Seattle. As a Zero Waste Certified campus we will continue to focus further on waste-reduction initiatives.
For Nadella, a renovation like this is an opportunity to create a collaborative environment for work with a better balance of work and employee wellbeing.
