Apple Inc. opened its sprawling new main campus in Cupertino, California, earlier this year, while Amazon.com Inc.is now looking for a city to host a second headquarters projected to cost more than $5 billion.

Once the project is completed, Microsoft's total Redmond footprint will consist of 131 buildings and the equivalent of 180 football fields of new and renovated space.

Microsoft has announced it's going to renovate and expand its Redmond, Washington headquarters in a bid to modernise the business' campus. "As Microsoft continues to create the tools and services that are shaping the future of work, we can't think of a better time to modernize our campus into a model of ingenuity and innovation", explained Smith. The development also includes a huge open plaza measuring two acres, which will be able to fit 12,000 people.
