WASHINGTON: New corporate headquarters are springing up across the United States. Walmart Inc, the world’s largest retailer and the country’s biggest private sector employer, on Friday revealed plans for a new corporate campus, joining rivals Amazon.com Inc and Apple in expanding their corporate campuses as President Donald Trump pressures US companies to make larger investments at home. The Bentonville, Ark. based-company is building a new headquarters in its hometown— a project it announced in September 2017— that will spread over 300 acres and house its nearly 17,000 employees with room to accommodate more as it creates new jobs. Bike trails that run through the heart of the campus, a massive park, fitness centres, food trucks and child care centres will be some of the amenities that will fuse with a modern aesthetic design, said Dan Bartlett, executive vice-president of corporate affairs, who is overseeing the project.
