ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Microsoft Corp. has announced plans to open a new regional headquarters in the Cortex district.

Wednesday, the Cortex Innovation Community announced that Microsoft Corp.’s new regional headquarters and a Microsoft Technology Center will open in the summer of 2018.

“Adding a pillar of technology innovation like Microsoft to the Cortex community is a great validation of our mission,” said Dennis Lower, president of Cortex. “The new Microsoft Technology Center brings another leading-edge technology resource to St. Louis’ booming innovation community, and its presence adds further credibility to the reality that St. Louis has become one of the leading growth cities for innovation companies.”

With the 29,000-square-foot facility, Microsoft will bring 150 employees to Cortex. The company is also investing more than $50 million in local jobs, facilities and software grants. Micorsoft said it will closed its offices in Creve Couer and move many of those workers to the Cortex.

"Opening a Microsoft Technology Center in the thriving Central West End district is exciting for our company and our customers, as St. Louis continues to support a booming technology scene," said Ervin Flores, general manager, Mid-America District, at Microsoft. "We are thrilled to support local startups, as well as enterprises large and small, through our work with the Cortex Innovation Community."

Since being founded in 2002, Cortex has grown and is a leading hub of innovation and technology for the Midwest.
