ATLANTA — Microsoft Corp. is investing $75 million for its new office space at Atlantic Station in West Midtown Atlanta. The software giant is leasing 523,000 square feet within Atlantic Yards, a two-building office project that Hines and Invesco Real Estate are developing and where Microsoft will be the sole office tenant. The company expects to open its new offices in summer 2021 and create 1,500 high-tech jobs.
