Samsung this morning announced its plans for expansion and relocation to a new 8.5 acre campus in Mountain View in California. The new R&D Center will provide a state-of-the-art campus which can support current rapid growth in the organization and also provide the infrastructure to support Samsung’s open innovation and university collaboration activities.
“Our new R&D Center will provide an outstanding environment to support our plans for strategic growth and attracting the very best employees,” said Jay Chang, president of SISA. The construction for the new center will start in the second half of 2013 on the company’s two new six-story class-A office buildings totaling approximately 385,000 sq. ft. and two 5-6 story parking structures, with occupancy expected in 2014.
