NBCNews.com confirmed today that it is moving its operations from Microsoft’s Redmond campus to Seattle’s tallest skyscraper, Columbia Center. It plans to take over floor 26 in the building later this year, about 23,000 square feet of space.
“We’re thrilled to be moving into our own home at the Columbia Center,” said Vivian Schiller, Chief Digital Officer of NBC News, in a statement. “This new space will be a collaborative environment for our team as they work to build innovative new products and platforms for the NBC News Digital Group and help to shape the future of NBC News.”
Microsoft sold its stake in MSNBC.com last year, and the company changed its name to NBCNews.com at that time. It continues to operate a large presence, including its Newsvine unit, in the Seattle area.
The move to Columbia Center was previously reported by GeekWire.
