MS moves closer to the water

MS moves closer to the water

THE move will not be far, but the view will be better. Microsoft New Zealand is relocating its head office to within Auckland’s Viaduct technology belt.

After being located in Fanshawe Street, on the rim of the Viaduct precinct, for the past four years, the company has signed a nine-year lease for a larger building in nearby Halsey Street, overlooking the waterfront.

Construction on the new building begins soon and the shift is scheduled for August 2006.

The new premises will include a social room, video conference room facilities, an outdoor courtyard and increased staff parking. Employees will be located on one floor, with a second floor dedicated to a reception area, customer meeting rooms and Microsoft’s new Business Productivity Centre, which was launched in November.

Microsoft says the move is an investment in the company’s future growth and will include more space for customers and partners to have hands-on experience of its technology.

The new building is being designed and built by Newcrest Development, which also undertook the KPMG and Vodafone buildings in Auckland.

This will be the second shift in as many years for Microsoft — it moved its Wellington office to Mobil on the Park in Lambton Quay in 2003.

About 75% of the company’s 120 staff are Auckland based.
