Microsoft is coming to the Cortex Innovation Community in St. Louis’ Central West End.
The Washington state-based company will open its regional headquarters and a Microsoft Technology Center to serve as an anchor for a new tech building at 4220 Duncan Ave.
Microsoft district general manager Ervin Flores said the available talent in the region was a big factor in choosing St. Louis.
Microsoft is expected to invest $50 million in the facility and bring 150 jobs to the city. Sixty of those positions are moving from a local Microsoft office in Creve Coeur. The new jobs are part of Microsoft’s expansion of the St. Louis office to include a regional headquarters as well as a Microsoft Technology Center.
Flores said the company has 40 technology centers around the world.
