About 8 months ago, VMware broke ground on what was to be the largest con­struc­tion project in Palo Alto in the last decade. Last week, the first lucky peo­ple moved into build­ing A, and today, those of us in the Hosted UI group (who do Work­sta­tion and the like) moved into build­ing B.

I think it’s safe to say that no expense was spared. The image below is the com­mon area in our build­ing. A lot more fur­ni­ture is sched­uled to arrive later on. There are lots more pho­tos in my Flickr Set.

Building B Common Area

Two of the four office build­ings are now filled with peo­ple. Con­struc­tion on the other two is still going on, and vir­tu­ally no land­scap­ing has been done except for a giant oak tree which was trans­planted into the court­yard. Some­time next year the soc­cer field and gym­na­sium will be finished.

Does this look like an awe­some place to work? We’re hir­ing :)
