Microsoft Stays Home, Plans Remodel to Urbanize Headquarters Campus

Microsoft now has 125 buildings at its campus, and once the project is complete this will rise to 131 buildings.

That divergence was underscored Tuesday by Microsoft's announcement of a major redevelopment and expansion of its headquarters campus in Redmond, about 16 miles east of Seattle.

Microsoft says the new campus will be "built for pedestrians and bikes" with auto parking moved underground.

Microsoft also says that it wants its new campus to be more open rather than formal, and it will divide it into a set of "team neighborhoods". 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. Further, Smith told GeekWire that the company does not intend to offload any of its downtown Bellevue space or vacate the offices in Issaquah, where it recently renewed a big lease. That would enable Microsoft to raise the headcount at Redmond to a staggering 55,000 employees.

Microsoft will tear down 12 existing buildings, including the iconic but outdated X-shaped low-rises that were the company's original Redmond home. However, with the new buildings, the company plans to take a different approach.

The renovation will see the iconic X-shaped buildings of Bill Gates' Microsoft era go. Now, we can add Microsoft to the growing list of companies looking to spruce up their campus. "There's an opportunity to build a somewhat denser campus and create a somewhat more urban feel", Smith said.

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.

The company also secured a zoning change past year that allows it to construct some buildings on the east side of its campus up to 10 stories tall, but it said it has no plans for that height now. We will also build off the region's smart investments in transportation by constructing a foot- and cyclist-only bridge across WA-520 that will connect both sides of our campus and tie into the future Redmond Technology Transit Station where Link Light Rail will arrive in 2023.
