Microsoft Will Demolish Its Campus to Build a Mini
Nov 30, 2017, 13:06
MICROSOFT LIKES big campuses and it can not lie, which is why its re-building its Seattle headquarters to fit in an extra 8,000 workers.
Smith noted that when the project concludes, there would be 131 buildings comprising 180 football fields, modern workspace to house 57,000 employees and additional space to accommodate around 8,000 more people.
Microsoft will embark on a significant modernization of its global headquarters, with a goal of 18 new buildings by the end of 2024.
Microsoft has already informed the employees about the plans, and on Wednesday, the company would discuss the plans at the shareholders meeting. Although the project is set to start in fall of 2018, it won't be completed for another five to seven years after that.
As part of the project, Microsoft will also tear down older buildings that no longer fit its needs. The campus will be divided into "team neighborhoods", which I imagine turns every single day into a corporate retreat team-building exercise.
Microsoft's modern campus overhaul isn't as futuristic as the Apple Park, but the company says it's a major step forward for its culture, substantially expanding its headquarters with modern workplaces and creating 2,500 construction and development jobs in the area.
In their place, and in the acres around them, 18 new buildings will rise, with flexible floor plans meant to foster collaboration, inspiration, and accessibility.
The construction of the new campus should require 2,500 construction and development jobs, and Smith explained that it should be a boon for the Puget Sound area.
"We've focused on the cultural transformation of the company". Overall, the campus will be designed more for pedestrians and usage of the local light rail, which will reach the campus by then based on the region's current plan. We'll also continue to fully fund transit options for employees, including ORCA transit cards, carpool and vanpool, and Microsoft-run employee Connector buses and other vehicles to supplement existing options.
Microsoft headquarters was from its early days, and well into the 21st century, a campus for software engineers driving their roadsters to parking lots surrounding buildings full of individual offices.
