Nike’s ambition doesn’t end with its plan to reach $50 billion in annual sales by 2020. The athletic giant released a sneak peek of the 3.2 million square feet expansion of its world headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. on Thursday. Nike said the design ensures “fluid future growth.”
The project, scheduled to be completed in 2018, includes a combination of LEED Platinum-certified office space, mixed-use and parking facilities. New structures are linked to preexisting buildings through paths, green spaces and sports courts.
“Every day at Nike we dream up new ways to inspire athletes to expand their potential,” said Nike Inc. President and CEO Mark Parker in a statement. “To do that, we relentlessly evolve how we inspire our own teams and design environments that foster chemistry and collaboration. Our expanding World Headquarters reflects the best of Nike’s culture—a place where we obsess the athlete and invent future products and experiences for consumers everywhere.”
A trio of Northwest-based firms: ZGF Architects, SRG Partnership and Skylab Architecture will guide design, while Place Studio, of Portland, will provide landscape architecture services.
