Microsoft to open new HQ in downtown Toronto

Microsoft has announced they will be opening their new Canadian headquarters in downtown Toronto, across from the Scotiabank Arena.

The new building, which is already under construction, is in the Bay and Lakeshore area.

The headquarters will be 130,000 square feet and take up four-floors, with a move-in date two years from now.

The company says it expects to grow its staff by more than 500 full-time positions in this country.
