Joeb Moore Terms Weyerhaeuser an"Extraordinary Example of Environmental Design and Corporate Campus Planning"
On January 24, 2021, architect Joeb Moore wrote the following letter to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Seattle district commander Col. Alexander Bullock concerning proposals to build 1.5-million square feet of warehouse space at the Weyerhaeuser Corporate Headquarters in Federal Way, WA. The Weyerhaeuser complex, which was completed in 1972, was designed by landscape architect Peter Walker, founding principal of Sasaki, Walker & Associates, and architect Edward Charles Bassett, principal with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. This new construction would result in the clear-cutting of some 132 mostly forested acres on the 425-acre campus. A similar letter was sent to the Mayor Jim Ferrell of Federal Way, because the city must issue permits for the warehouses.
