MSN/Windows Live confirmed as staying in RedWest
There’s recently been talk about whether or not the MSN and Windows Live product teams would be moving from the Microsoft RedWest campus to the new Advanta buildings in southeast Bellevue. But it’s now been confirmed by The Seattle Times that the MSN and Windows Live product teams will in fact be staying at the RedWest campus.
“It’s true that the [MSN/Windows Live] group was considered to be the candidate to move to Advanta, but is not moving to Advanta,” writes Microsoft spokesman Lou Gellos in an e-mail. “… The reason is that, ultimately, it was decided that a move to Advanta would actually split the group. Not of all them would move. So they’ll stick together at RedWest. No word on which group may move to Advanta, though, as is the case in all of this activity, a number of scenarios are being considered.”
