Microsoft Will Demolish Its Campus to Build a Mini

Microsoft plans upgrade for Redmond headquarters Apple's Spaceship better look out, Microsoft is modernizing its HQ too

The updated campus will house 47,000 Microsoft employees that now work at the company's headquarters in Redmond, and allow for 8,000 more people. 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.

As part of the overhaul, Microsoft is also building a huge 2-acre open plaza where it will a variety of different facilities - but most importantly, it will be able to hold up to 12,000 people for events, which means the company will probably start holding major events like Build and Ignite at its main campus in a few years time.

A notable element of the project is Microsoft's plans to construct several underground parking garages with the intention of making the campus car-free and suitable for walking and bicycles. All vehicle parking will go underground, and in its place will spring up sports fields, a tree-lined boulevard, and a two-acre open plaza that can hold up to 12,000 people for events.

Urban campuses in the heart of bustling cities may be all the rage for tech companies these days, but Microsoft thinks it can create some of that modern city vibe without leaving its forested suburban campus.

This project represents a significant investment by the company, will involve roughly 2,500 construction and development jobs, and will take five to seven years to complete. It will be the company's biggest physical expansion in more than a decade. There are also plans for a local light rail to take workers to and from locations around the campus.

Microsoft has already informed the employees about the plans, and on Wednesday, the company would discuss the plans at the shareholders meeting. We prize our relationship with the City of Redmond and will work closely with officials on the approval for campus and building architectural designs, engineering, building permit review and land use code compliance. Pretty much every employee got their own office, a perk that helped Microsoft attract talent.

The developer of the Spring District, by the way, is Wright Runstad, which back in 1986 built the first six X-shaped buildings that will be replaced as part of this latest renovation. (Construction is expected to begin next fall.) Microsoft has some 47,000 employees in the region now.
