Smith noted that when the project concludes, there would be 131 buildings comprising 180 football fields, modern workspace to house 57,000 employees and additional space to accommodate around 8,000 more people.
Microsoft is planning to build out its 500-acre campus in Redmond, Washington, with 18 new buildings, 6.7 million square feet of renovated workspace, United States dollars 150 million in transportation infrastructure improvements, public spaces, sports fields and green space. Microsoft's campus in Redmond is a 500-acre parcel that the software giant says is close to a "vibrant urban core, suburban towns, mountains, lakes, and forests". Auto parks that sat adjacent buildings will be moved underground to provide more space for buildings and recreational ground. The plan is to create more open office space to encourage greater collaboration and creativity among staff, similar to how some of Microsoft's tech rivals operate. The project would take about five and seven years to complete.
