Microsoft will officially open the doors on its new development center in Vancouver, British Columbia today. The new office is designed to hold 750 employees. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is scheduled to take part in the opening ceremonies.
Microsoft has had offices in Vancouver for several years. Indeed, the city is the home of The Coalition, the in-house gaming development team that's currently working on Gears of War 4 for the Xbox One. However, Microsoft has other team members that work on Skype, OneNote HoloLens and other products in the area as well.
With the opening of the new development center, all of Microsoft's employees in Vancouver will be in one location for the first time. In a chat with GeekWire about the opening, Microsoft President Brad Smith said he hops the Vancouver office will spark a trend:
"We want to also start talking about and really investing in this region not just as a single city or one important country but as a corridor that actually connects two big important cities and two countries," Smith said.
