Microsoft Unveils Multibillion-Dollar Campus Overhaul
Apple's Spaceship better look out, Microsoft is modernizing its HQ too

Along with the new buildings and public spaces, Microsoft's new campus is created to have running and walking trails and an open-air plaza capable of holding 8,000 to 12,000 people.
Microsoft hasn't said how much such renovation work will set it back, but it's unlikely going to be cheap as there's nearly certainly going to be some high-end luxury modern design, possibly to stick two fingers up as Apple's "Spaceship" campus in California, particularity when Microsoft says the campus will focus on "inclusive design and accessible technology" to "empower" employees.
The company today revealed plans to launch a multibillion-dollar overhaul of its headquarters in the Seattle suburb of Redmond.
The campus will primarily be built for pedestrian and bike traffic as all vehicles will be moved to an underground parking facility.
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. The development also includes a huge open plaza measuring two acres, which will be able to fit 12,000 people. Microsoft estimates that this project will take between five and seven years to complete.
That transportation emphasis is perhaps the biggest difference from the expansion plan a decade ago. There are also plans for a local light rail to take workers to and from locations around the campus. That would enable Microsoft to raise the headcount at Redmond to a staggering 55,000 employees.
"With 500 acres, we can construct a somewhat more urban feel to parts of our campus, while still taking advantage of the nature", he said.
Our new buildings will focus on inclusive design and accessible technology to empower all of our employees.
Redmond has been Microsoft's home since 1986, and we are proud to be an active part of the Puget Sound community.
