Microsoft will have nearly 1,400 employees in Seattle as it expands its office space in the city.

About 400 Microsoft employees, including the company’s online services business, will move into the building in March 2008. It will also provide office space for up to 150 Microsoft employees who want to avoid rush-hour commutes to Redmond.
Microsoft announced two other new work locations in the city: 111 S. Jackson in Pioneer Square and 505 Union Station, the headquarters of Vulcan, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s development company.
