Amazon has leased another large office space in Redmond, Wash., according to a permit filing that names the tech giant as the future tenant of a building under renovation in the Redmond Hilltop business park.
The plans, which Amazon has not yet publicly announced, signal further expansion by the company on the Eastside, across Lake Washington from its Seattle headquarters. They also indicate a larger footprint for Amazon near two of its rivals. In addition to serving as Microsoft’s home, Redmond is headquarters for SpaceX’s Starlink satellite division.
Amazon Web Services, whose competitors include Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform, has an existing presence at Redmond Town Center, and said in June that it would put an additional 800 jobs in Redmond, adding to the 600 that had been previously announced.
