The company's goal is to construct 18 new buildings on the East Redmond campus, and over time, workers will demolish 12 older buildings.

The new development will also include a 12,000-person open plaza event space.

"Our goal is to build the most modern workplace, and create the best employee experience, in our industry," Microsoft President Brad Smith said.

This campus overhaul is the first in more than a decade and is aimed at also attracting some 8,000 additional workers.

The project's completion date is set for 2024, around the same time the Redmond light rail station is set to open for service.
