Google has reportedly just thrown $100 million on a Mountain View office complex, continuing its real estate expansion. Google paid $100 million for a 240,000-square-foot office near its HQ. A Google spokesperson confirmed that they purchased the space, known as The Landmark at Shoreline. But, declined to disclose the purchase price.
David Radcliffe, Google's vice president of real estate and workplace services, said in a statement:
As we continue to hire it's important to find space for our new employees. The Landmark is strategically situated adjacent to our offices and we look forward to incorporating it into our campus.
The new Mountain View complex still adheres to zoning rules, which allows Google to employ 960 workers at its new office. The Google spokesperson declined to say just how many employees would eventually work there. So far, Google have spent roughly US$225 million for fifteen other properties, all existing buildings, creating a unique campus outlay.
