AMGEN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT CENTER
The Amgen Research and Development Center was a multiphase development for 29 acres of industrial harbor-front property north of downtown Seattle. Ultimately the campus housed 2,400 employees in 15 buildings totaling 1,300,000 NSF with structured parking for 1,500 cars and a self-contained central utility system. The project master plan was designed to meet both the technical requirements of bio-technology research and to take advantage of the dramatic site opportunities. Johnson Oaklief Architecture & Planning was responsible for overall project management, coordination of the master planning team, management of the EIS process, land use analysis and permitting, programming of non-scientific facilities and community presentations and design of a picnic shelter.
