This year, Nike has commissioned a ton of brick laying in its headquarter city of Oregon including expansions and new parking lots with a total of 148 building permits since February, but it’s actually spending most of its money on improvements to existing buildings.
Portland Business Journal reports that at least $18 million has been spent on renovations, including $6 million on updates to the Mia Hamm building, which contains the Nike Sports Research Lab, and a new barista station for the Nolan Ryan building that will run $175,000. That’s right — Nike’s spending nearly 200 grand on coffee.
It’s also noted that there’s been an uptick in security-related permits like cameras, video systems, and turnstiles to keep trespassers at bay, so don’t get any bright ideas.
