NBCNews.com plans to lease about 23,000 square feet on one floor of downtown Seattle’s Columbia Center and move in later this year, according to a commercial real estate source who declined to speak for attribution.

The online news site, known as MSNBC.com until last year when NBC bought out Microsoft’s half ownership, will be moving from Microsoft’s Redmond campus.

NBCNews.com handles the site’s technical operations and develops new technologies for NBC’s news and entertainment groups.
