Google might dominate the internet, our smartphones, and everything in between but it seems that the company is looking at shuffling things over and opening up a new facility in San Jose, CA.

The San Jose City Council has agreed to negotiate the sale of 16 parcels of land owned by the city, with San Jose's mayor and vice mayor strongly supporting Google, but the residents of San Jose... not so much. Google's purported new facility would be separate to its campus in Mountain View, and would see the Diridon Station area of San Jose turn into a gigantic transit hub - including a Google village and up to 20,000 jobs.

If Google recices the go-ahead, the search giant would build somewhere between 6-8 million square feet of office space, and up to 3000 units of housing. There would also be a high-speed rail line and BART trains, as there's the Amtrak and Caltrain hub in San Jose. Google has teamed with partners securing land for months, with two property investor groups throwing $130 million onto real estate in the surrounding areas.
