Microsoft gobbles more Eastside office space

Microsoft plans to move in to 87,000-square-feet of primo Issaquah office space on Nov. 1. The company has signed a lease agreement with Wells Real Estate Investment Trust for more than half of the five-story Eastpointe Corporate Center.

Wells, which announced the deal today, also extended an existing lease with Boeing for the rest of the 158,000-square-foot, class-A space. Boeing has been a tenant there since 2001.

Both companies committed to five-year lease deals at the building on Black Nugget Road. Other terms were not disclosed.

Microsoft is adding 3.1 million square feet of office space to ease crowding on its campus and has been actively leasing Eastside office space, including a deal for the top 15 floors of Lincoln Tower in Bellevue.
