Microsoft President Brad Smith said the company plans to make metro Atlanta a major hub as it embarks on a significant expansion

Atlanta, GA – According to the statement, the tech giant is adding two regional data centers and could bring thousands of jobs to 90 acres of land it bought in recent months at the stalled Quarry Yards development on the city’s Westside.

The Microsoft President Brad Smith declined to provide specific details or a timetable for Quarry Yards, one of the largest undeveloped tracts of greenspace near the city center, beyond saying it would set aside a quarter of the development for affordable housing before building any offices.

All of Microsoft’s business divisions will have workers assigned to Atlanta. The company’s businesses range from cloud computing to consumer products like Word and Excel.

The officials declined to say how many workers it currently employs in metro Atlanta, but it’s likely around 1,000.
