Expedia announced in April that it was taking it's roughly 3,000 employees and moving from Bellevue to Amgen's former 750,000 square-foot Interbay campus. Now comes news (courtesy of DJC) that they've got big plans for an expansion. The online travel company has field a shoreline substantial development application to add approximately 1.2 million square feet of new office space and 2,070 parking spaces. The plan would mean four existing buildings would be expanded and a new 546,000-square-foot structure would be constructed. Expedia could now end up with as much as 1.9 million square feet of space as well as parking for 3,300 vehicles. That's very good news considering so many of their current employees live on the Eastside. This expansion is the first part of a 15-year plan to improve the campus though it's still to be determined if future phases will happen.
