With new technology center, Microsoft expands its turf on ‘Silicon Beach’

The Playa Vista offices are also closer to Microsoft’s own entertainment venture: the Xbox Entertainment Studio

“Microsoft opened new offices in Playa Vista Thursday, adding to its presence in the technology zone known as Silicon Beach.

Elected officials, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Congresswoman Maxine Waters were on hand to cut the ribbon on the new Microsoft Technology Center. The center will be the base for about 130 Microsoft employees and replace offices in downtown Los Angeles.
