"The 125 buildings that make Microsoft's campus will become 131 when the project is complete, with the inclusion of "$150 million (£112 million) in transportation infrastructure improvements, public spaces, sports fields and green space", Microsoft's blog post reads. 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. Microsoft now employs 47,000 at its Redmond headquarters.
Microsoft today unveiled its plans for a major campus overhaul at its home, Redmond. The campus will be divided into "team neighborhoods", which I imagine turns every single day into a corporate retreat team-building exercise.
Buildings on the campus will be closer together than before and its focus is more on pedestrianising Microsoft's headquarters, rather than turning it into a sprawl navigable only by auto.
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. The campus will also have facilities for cricket and soccer, walking and running trails as well as retail space so that its neighbors can also enjoy it.
The buildings will be closer together, and parking that is now adjacent will be moved underground.
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. Having been the bane of many Microsoft employee for their confusing corridors, it's unlikely they'll be missed. 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. However, with the new buildings, the company plans to take a different approach.
With the announcement, Microsoft is seeking to match the workplace upgrades many of its biggest rivals are pursuing.
