Microsoft Research to double Cambridge space?

Microsoft Research Ltd is believed to be close to agreeing a deal with the University of Cambridge to virtually double its space on the institution’s West Cambridge site.

Microsoft needs extra space to facilitate its rapid growth from Cambridge and reports from the local property sector suggested it would move off the West Cambridge site to another local base if it failed to negotiate suitable terms with the university. While neither the University nor Microsoft is prepared to comment, we understand an agreement is now imminent. Cambridge was Microsoft Corporation’s first research base outside of its Redmond headquarters.
