Microsoft will build a new sales hub in the Washington DC area. Toni Townes-Whitley, president, US Regulated Industries at Microsoft, announced on LinkedIn that Microsoft signed a new lease for a building in Arlington, Virginia. The building will become the home of Microsoft's regional Global Sales and Marketing Organization teams, as well as the Microsoft Sales Headquarters Office for the DMV (Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia) area. Townes-Whitley's U.S. Regulated Industries team, which includes the Microsoft Federal organization, will also operate from the new building.
The building is at 1300 Wilson Blvd in Arlington, VA, which is just on the Virginia side of the Potomac River. The building will include a Microsoft Technology Center and "state-of-the-art customer facilities, according to Townes-Whitley.

The announcement post also explains that the project is built "with customers in mind" and that it can evolve to meet the needs of customers.
