It’s no surprise that a travel company chose this site for their new HQ—with stunning views of the Puget Sound and mountains in the distance, the setting certainly inspires adventure. Currently, Expedia’s headquarters can be found in a Bellevue skyscraper, and the move will be a big change for the company… and the surrounding Seattle neighborhoods.
Places like Magnolia, Queen Anne, and Fremont will undoubtedly become a popular choice for homebuyers. There are various phases to the HQ buildings, but “Phase 1” will be able to fit up to 4,500 more employees. This will be a huge boon to the area as thousands of Expedia employees flock to nearby neighborhoods, undoubtedly in hopes of short commute times (especially since Expedia plans to give employees $5 for every day they don’t use drive a car to work).
