Note:  Over the years, ESPN has also leased an increasing amount of space in nearby locations; now consisting of two locations totaling 454,179 square feet.  Notably, the North Campus Building (formerly Superior Electric, and further back the site of a commercial airport) first was occupied in 2002; ESPN became the sole occupant by 2016 (405,495 s.f.).
