Situated on the Elliott Bay waterfront, the campus is a destination consciously designed to celebrate iconic symbols of travel docked cruise ships, flights overhead, trains rolling by and undulating green space, surrounded by epic views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.
"Our employees spend 10’s of millions of hours a year making it possible for travellers around the world to find their perfect destination. We intend to make our new headquarters the ideal workplace destination for our employees, a landing-place where Expedia Group employees can bring their passion for travel and tech to do their very best work," said Mark Nagle, vice president, global real estate, Expedia Group. "Truly one-of-a-kind, the 40 acre campus is surrounded by the natural environment which will serve as a constant source of inspiration for current and future employees who are committed to our purpose of bringing the world within reach."
The hallmarks of the Seattle campus will be sustainable LEED-certified buildings, collaborative spaces fusing an environment of hospitality and productivity and incredible views of the Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains, downtown Seattle and the working port.
The spaces are designed with the company's strategy and principles in mind open and connected, innovative and engaging. The new space integrates "biophilic design" the concept of connecting people and nature for our physical and mental well-being through a focus on natural light, expansive views of the water and surrounding landscape, open workspaces and outdoor areas for people to work, think or simply take a break.
