The campus consists of two buildings, 192,779 and 198,461 sf, at 12500 and 12510 E. Belford Ave. Connected by a basement-level walkway, the buildings include office and data center space, a cafeteria, fitness center, conference and training facilities, an outdoor plaza and a parking ratio of 4.6:1,000.
