Alaska Airlines has unveiled plans to construct a 128,000-square-foot building near Sea-Tac Airport that will provide a modern and efficient office space for its growing workforce, the company said.
The new building will be across the street from Alaska´s Corporate Headquarters and adjacent to its Flight Training Center, providing office space for approximately 600 Alaska employees in technology, System Operations Control and other key functions.
The Hub will be constructed on a 6.8-acre site that Alaska Airlines acquired in January and where demolition is already underway. Building construction will begin by July 2018 and is expected to be completed by early 2020. Redevelopment will also include a new parking garage, surface parking, landscaped paths and other site improvements.
Designed by the architecture firm NBBJ, the Hub will include centralized space dedicated to a number of functions that support our frontline employees. In addition to serving as a recruiting center, the Hub will be home to the uniform fit center, company Store and provide a functional and efficient workspace for the operations centers for Alaska and Horizon as well as the e-commerce team and some ITS employees.
