This corporate headquarters consists of two six-story buildings totaling 453,000 square feet and comprising conventional office space and support areas. In addition, the buildings house a 15,000 square foot cafeteria featuring a full-service kitchen, a conference center, a training facility, a 5,000 square foot call center with 24/7 support, a 5,000 square foot fitness center with a locker/shower area, and a 500 square foot data center. Astellas constructed the new facility with ample space to allow for future growth.

Multiple LEED innovation points for LEED Gold certification were based on the use of geothermal heat rejection integral to the HVAC systems.
