The Goodyear City Council unanimously approved a development agreement that will allow Microsoft to begin construction on two buildings in a planned “five-building technology center.”

The tech giant owns 279 acres south of Interstate 10 near the Phoenix Goodyear Airport.

“We’re very excited and very proud,” Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord said after Monday’s vote. “This is a real big move for us.”

Lord told The Arizona Republic that she’s hopeful that Microsoft’s announcement will bring more tech companies to the suburb that has steadily expanded its industry in recent years.
