Demolition will begin this week as a precursor to construction of Intuit's new addition to its Mountain View, Calif., campus. The first of two additions, a 185,000-sf building on Marine Way, is expected to begin construction in August. 

According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Intuit already occupies approximately a million sf in Mountain View and Menlo Park. The second addition, located at Bayshore Parkway and Garcia Avenue, is set to reach LEED Platinum standards and house up to 900 employees.

Designed by WRNS Studio and Clive Wilkinson Architects, the Bayshore building will feature floor-to-ceiling glass, green spaces on the roof, and will be surrounded by 74,000 sf of landscaped area.

Intuit's global head of real estate Chris Glenning spoke of the new Mountain View projects  during a recent panel discussion, saying: "When I joined a couple of years ago, we were just figuring out our future. Our board decided we would stay in our campus, and we'd start making investments in upgrading our existing buildings and add some land around us."

On their existing campus, Intuit already has a special center for employee amenities, and there a plans to build a "main street" environment where the ground floors of Intuit buildings create a walkable interface.

"The idea is that talent is what it's all about," Glennon said. "We engaged our friends at WRNS and Clive Wilkinson to help us develop the next wave of our development."

Completion is set for 2016.
