VF Corporation has broken ground on construction of a new corporate headquarters for The North Face, JanSport and Lucy. The campus, set on 11 acres in Alameda, California, should be open for business in summer 2012. It will be made up of four buildings covering a total of 160,000 square feet; VF Corp. has reserved the option to buy some adjacent land for possible future expansion. The campus overlooks San Francisco Bay and has access to running trails and designated outdoor recreation space for employees’ convenience. VF will seek LEED Gold status for the facilities, which are going to be built with wind and solar power and an energy-efficient heating and cooling system.
