Gilead Sciences, which was already planning a massive expansion of its corporate headquarters on Lakeside Drive, is now pursuing an even larger project that will nearly double the footprint of its campus, city officials say. The biotech giant won approval from the city in 2010 for a renovation of its headquarters that would allow the company to increase its workforce there from 1,700 to as many as 3,400 employees. But the purchase of an adjacent property will enable Gilead to take its architectural makeover much further.
