In addition to providing office space, the new Microsoft campus will include student housing and retail space. The mixed-use development will play an integral role in the Lyngby-Taarbæk City of Knowledge and Urban Development [6] 2020 plan, which aims to make Lyngby one of the top university towns in northern Europe. The development is also expected to create a lot of new jobs, and it will bring university students and Microsoft employees closer together.

According to Henning Larsen [3], the new campus will reflect Microsoft’s vision of the office of the future, which will promote worker collaboration through a flexible interior layout that is based on state-of-the-art technologies.

“The project reflects an interesting urban development strategy,” said Mayor Søren P. Rasmussen in a statement. ”Knowledge-intensive businesses are connected to urban life and the local study community. In addition, the building will create a lot of new jobs and provide a welcoming, dynamic urban space where city centre and green areas meet.”
