Another new Microsoft building

This one’s coming to North Dakota, where the company’s creating space for 575 more employees in Fargo. Ina Fried has details:

The software maker said it is just the first step of a planned expansion that will one day allow Microsoft to have as many as 3,800 workers at that facility. It currently has nearly 1,300 workers in Fargo, including 956 full-time employees and 337 contractors and temporary workers.

(Fargo is probably a nice place. But if Microsoft wants to be sure the aQuantive team stays focused and productive through the merger, it ought to raise the prospect of transferring there from downtown Seattle….)
