#Microsoft devours more #BayArea open space

Microsoft, poised for expansion into north San Jose, has bought 65 acres of empty land along State Route 237 between Alviso and Milpitas, signaling that the site fits into its plans to widen its reach in cloud and internet technologies.

The Redmond, Washington-based tech titan paid $73.2 million for the land on the western banks of the Coyote River.

Proposals have been submitted to the city for constructing four office buildings, which could total 437,000 square feet. Typical zoning rules could allow 2,200 people to work in those buildings.

Adios open space.
