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, WA. 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 biotechnology research and to take advantage of the dramatic site opportunities. Johnson Oaklief Architecture and 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.
