Microsoft to move into Brussels Airport
Microsoft has signed a lease agreement to set up its new offices at Brussels Airport in the PassPort building - a new real estate project developed by CODIC. The PassPort building is currently under construction and will be providing ultramodern offices with a sweeping panoramic view overlooking the runways as from 2018. This again sees Brussels Airport confirm its appeal as an intermodal platform with unrivalled connectivity in Belgium and to the rest of the globe.
CODIC and Microsoft have inked a long-term lease agreement to occupy 3,500 m² in the PassPort building currently under construction at the Brussels Airport site.
During the course of 2018, this is where Microsoft is set to open its ‘Internet-of-Things’ office. The Brussels office is to be a central gathering ground for staff, partners and customers.
Microsoft Belux General Manager Michael Beal: "We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to open our ‘Internet-of-Things’ office at this unique location. We are looking to embrace sustainability, quality of life and ecology at our new office. Moreover, our customers and partners will be able to immerse themselves in the latest developments surrounding our cloud technology, including the Internet of Things, bots, machine learning and artificial intelligence."
The Airport Business District must become a vibrant ecosystem of its own, where large companies mingle with start-ups. With room for biodiversity and greenery. With room for innovation and new activities.
As part of its Strategic Vision 2040, Brussels Airport Company has put together a Quality Board to provide guidance to the company in the conception and design of ambitious planning projects and of the airport’s public spaces.
