About the Project:

The Workday Campus and Innovation Plaza is a celebration of the iconic beauty of the California foothills. Featuring rolling landforms, native oak groves and wildflower-covered stormwater basins, the design creates a new public space that links Workday’s LEED-Platinum certified campus to the adjacent regional transit hub operated by Bay Area Rapid Transit. Converted from an unlit and underutilized portion of the property, the 1.5-acre Plaza is the result of a landmark public-private partnership between Workday, BART and the City of Pleasanton that infuses nature into the daily commute, showcases sustainable design and promotes the enjoyable use of mass transit.
