Microsoft Reveals Multibillion-Dollar Upgrade Plan For Redmond Campus

Microsoft Reveals Multibillion-Dollar Upgrade Plan For Redmond Campus

The company has 47,000 employees working at the Redmond campus today and once the expansion is completed there will be space for an additional 8000 staff.

"Next fall, we will break ground on a multi-year campus refresh project that will include 18 new buildings, 6.7 million square feet of renovated workspace, $150 million in transportation infrastructure improvements, public spaces, sports fields and green space", Microsoft wrote in its announcement.

And another student, Michael Sanchez, was of course anxious about Cox's wellbeing, saying: "It is like a serious thing". Cox, who was hired at Lake Central in August 2016, said she started using drugs four years ago as a college freshman.

Considering that Apple recently opened its new Apple Park campus and Amazon is looking for a second headquarters, Microsoft's expansion plans are not exactly surprising.

Microsoft says the investment will involve approximately 2,500 construction jobs and will benefit the overall Puget Sound community, which includes the Washington cities of Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, and Everett. Microsoft has been at the campus for 30 years; it now has 125 buildings there.

Gun background check requests hit record high on Black Friday, FBI says
The number represents a significant jump from the previous single-day record of 185,713 requests for background checks . These numbers only reflect the amount of people who applied to purchase a gun, not the number of actual gun sales.

The extension of Microsoft's Redmond campus is a reflection of the company's recent growth, and it also follows other redevelopment projects at Microsoft's offices in Vancouver BC and London. However, for Microsoft, which has been restructuring its operations lately, this new development is a sign that the company is regaining confidence under the new chief executive Satya Nadella. The campus will be divided into "team neighborhoods".

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. All auto 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.

Official says Trump won't campaign for Roy Moore
Two women have accused Moore of sexually assaulting or molesting them decades ago, when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers. The Peoria Republican was asked about Moore during his stop at last week's McLean County Republican Party breakfast.

The expansion will also see the addition of a 2-acre open plaza that can fit up to 12,000 people, walking trails, soccer and cricket facilities, and retail space. As a Zero Waste Certified campus we will continue to focus further on waste-reduction initiatives. There are also plans for a local light rail to take workers to and from locations around the campus.
