The 1.1 million square foot campus will consist of a 10-story central building with two completely open-air floors. The glass covered exterior will be contrasted by a white metal, while a parking garage with a folding green wall will also be present. Following in other Silicon Valley giants footsteps, the facility will house cafés, a gym, and even gardens for employees to rest and relax in. Samsung says that the campus will be built to LEED Gold standards meaning the entire footprint will be greener than its gardens.

n a statement on the matter, Samsung said "there is little surprise that most of their employees are based in South Korea where the company is headquartered. But the company also realizes that innovation is by no means geographically limited and as such, they are continuing to expand the extent of their operations elsewhere."
