"Microsoft unveiled plans Tuesday for a major reconstruction and upgrade of its main Silicon Valley campus in Mountain View," reports George Avalos.

Microsoft's renovation plans fit a trend around the Silicon Valley, as Google and Facebook (the latter in Fremont and San Francisco as well) plan expansions shortly after Apple completed its high-profile new headquarters.

"Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft estimated it will take two years to build the revamped, 643,000-square-foot Mountain View complex, which should be ready to occupy in December 2019," according to Avalos.
