L.L.Bean will celebrate the completion of its new 390,000-square-foot corporate headquarters in Freeport, ME, on June 15, marking the close to an eight-year, $110 million campus redevelopment in the company’s longtime hometown.
The architects purposefully created the space to bring the outdoors in to connect with nature through expansive views, natural light, indoor/outdoor meeting space, indoor fireplaces and outdoor fire pits, national park murals, public trails, and a 10,000-square-foot open courtyard.
L.L.Bean Executive Chairman Shawn Gorman guided the vision for the redevelopment to embody his great-grandfather’s love for the outdoors and promote employee well-being through connecting with nature.
Post-COVID, the company welcomed employees back to the office in December 2022.
