Microsoft’s presence in Georgia is growing. In addition to our new Atlantic Yards campus, we’ve announced plans for a new datacenter region with a presence in Douglas and Fulton counties, and the purchase of a 90-acre parcel of land to house a future campus at Quarry Yards and Quarry Hills on the Westside. We want to create a positive impact as an active partner in the Atlanta community. From setting aside 25% of our expansion site for facilities that benefit the community to creating programs that aim to close opportunity gaps and partnering with the many historic universities in the area – we are excited to work hand in hand with local organizations and community groups in Atlanta to ensure Microsoft and the city thrive.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and Microsoft leaders discuss Microsoft’s expansion in Atlanta
About Atlantic Yards
Located in the heart of the Midtown, in the Atlantic Yards complex, one of Atlanta’s most vibrant and bustling neighborhoods, the Atlantic Yards campus is close to public transportation stations, key Microsoft customers and partners, premier dining and shopping, and a handful of Georgia colleges and universities, making it a prime location to both engage with Atlanta’s community and access the city’s offerings. Further, the campus is adjacent to Atlantic Station, a neighborhood known as a top innovation district and an up-and-coming technology hub.
The facility has been designed to reflect local design elements and incorporate the surrounding outdoor areas into work and community spaces, perfect for promoting the Atlanta art and music scene.
