Global tech giant Microsoft are in the process of moving 100 staff to Manchester city centre. Located in the Neo building, which is a £8 million redevelopment on Charlotte Street, the 100 staff are expected to move into the building in July.
Orchestrated by commercial property company Bruntwood, Phil Kemp, CCO of the company, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Microsoft to Neo – an organisation perfectly suited to a place, purposely-designed to inspire creative thinking and collaborative working. Manchester was of course the birthplace of modern computing in the late 1940s and 1950s so to welcome a true leader in 21st century technology to our city is not only a perfect fit, but it’s a proud moment for us too.”
Microsoft having a presence in the city is testament to Manchester’s ability to draw big players and it’s growing international profile in the tech sector.
