Striking new headquarters hopes to reinvigorate Samsung innovation and U.S. presence
Following up on its previous announcement that the company will build a new U.S. headquarters in San Jose, California, Samsung is set to break ground on the new facility this week. The strikingly beautiful structure, which is designed by NBBJ, will end up being 10 stories tall and cover 1.1 million square feet. The glass and metal tower (shown above) will be accented by a parking structure and amenity pavilion. The design firm says that the building is meant to invite the community on campus with cafes and a "Samsung expo" at the corner.
The building is expected to be finished in 2015 at a total cost of $300 million, and will end up being the workplace for 2,000 Samsung employees in both R&D and sales. The goal for this new San Jose headquarters is to bring Samsung closer to the Silicon Valley tech scene, where companies like Google, Apple and Facebook have their world headquarters.
Construction is expected to begin this week, and in the meantime you can see several beautiful renders of what the finished product will look like at NBBJ's website below.
