RICHFIELD, Minn. - Rising up out of the landscape around Interstate 494 is the new headquarters for electronics superstore chain Best Buy Co.
The new 1.6-million-sq.-ft. structure is described by Best Buy officials as a "corporate campus," and will include two six-story and two eight-story office buildings, arranged around a central hub. This 100,000-sq. ft. common area connects the structures and includes an employee training area, conference space, childcare facilities, a wellness center and 250-seat auditorium. A connected, five-level, 6,800-car parking deck is also being built for the thousands of employees expected to use the facility when it opens later this year.
