Microsoft has opened a new headquarters in South Dublin Ireland. One Microsoft Place in Leopardstown took three years to construct according to RTE.IE.
“Really since Satya Nadella took on as CEO of the company and redefined our mission, which is to empower every individual and organisation on the planet to achieve more,” Microsoft’s Cthoriana Hallahan said, describing the building as a manifestation of the cultural transformation the company has undergone since Nadella’s ascent to CEO.
“What we are doing in this building is bringing all of the teams together, whether it is engineering, or operations or digital sales, and helping them to innovate in this new culture of one Microsoft.”
Microsoft has been in Ireland for 33 years this year, and this building is a symbol of its continued planned investment in the European country.
That’s not the end of Microsoft’s construction efforts in Europe, the firm will also open a new Microsoft Store in London’s Regent Street announced last year.
“This will be so much more than just a great place to experience all that is possible with Microsoft, but a real hub for the community where we’ll be bringing to life our passion for helping people explore their creativity through an ambitious program of workshops and training along with moments that work to unite the community.” Microsoft’s Cindy Rose said then of the effort.
