3.2 Million More Futuristic Square Feet at Nike Oregon Headquarters
Nike just announced the vibrant new fleet of Toronto-inspired NBA All-Star sneakers for a roster of legends like Kobe, Lebron, Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis, and Paul George.
At a time where the brand’s modern look of sport is celebrated—and drenched in sweat—by global citizens and the world’s best athletes alike, what better time for a LEED Platinum Certified upgrade for the team at Nike Oregon Headquarters?
Newly revealed plans from Northwest firms ZGF Architects, SRG Partnership, and Skylab Architecture unveiled 3.2 million additional square feet of office, mixed-use and parking space on the Beaverton, Oregon campus.
This phase continues the legacy of ongoing campus development that was introduced in 1990, when Nike World Headquarters opened at One Bowerman Drive.
The most recent expansion is expected to be complete by 2018.
“Every day at Nike we dream up new ways to inspire athletes to expand their potential. To do that, we relentlessly evolve how we inspire our own teams and design environments that foster chemistry and collaboration,” noted Mark Parker, President and CEO, NIKE, Inc.
Nike first purchased the Portland property in 1984 and has doubled its footprint in recent years. The snazzy master plan will showcase a connected, greener campus chalk-full of plenty of sports fields and courts. Sustainable features include integrating more natural light, passive chilled beams—a radiant convection system designed with the heating and cooling of large structures in mind—and even a closed-looped greywater treatment center, all with the goal of an ambitious LEED Platinum Certification.
“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.” explained Mark Parker.
The goal of the Nike Oregon Headquarters expansion is to build on the fluid teamwork, imaginative spirit, and movement essential for world-class innovation propelling the company forward, all with respect for its natural environment.
Expansions will only continue at Nike’s other concurrent builds across the world, such as Converse’s offices in Boston, Nike’s Greater China Headquarters in Shanghai, and a Nike workspace in Milan.
