Tech giant Microsoft has signed a 400,000-square-foot office lease at Two Freedom Drive in Reston.

The new office will have a focus on software development and is expected to create 1,500 new jobs. Microsoft will retain its existing 153,000-square-foot Reston office as well as its offices in Richmond and Chevy Chase, MD.

“We’ve had a presence in Reston for many years now, and this expansion will allow Microsoft to deliver even more solutions from a region known for its innovation and passion for technology,” said Terrell Cox, general manager at Microsoft.
