Microsoft is “accelerating” plans for its campus redevelopment project and will show off renderings of the massive project at a news conference on its Redmond campus Thursday morning.
In case you missed the news last year, Microsoft plans to add 2 million square feet of new office space to its campus, which now has about 8 million square feet. The work will take place over the next decade or two and create room for 10,000 to 12,0000 more employees.
Expect to hear a lot about the project’s economic benefits — the show is being run by General Counsel Brad Smith, and the guest speakers are Gov. Christine Gregoire, King County Executive Ron Sims and Redmond Mayor Rosemarie Ives. Funny, there aren’t any Issaquah politicians on the list.
