Construction began in January, 2015 on the three-year plans for Nike's headquarters expansion, which will add 3.2 million square feet of office, mixed-use and parking space to the campus. Construction plans include two office buildings, a fitness facility and two parking structures. In political deals, Nike agreed to some measure of job creation and to improve the surrounding roads. The building is aiming for a LEED Platinum certification and completion is slated for 2018.
