New Google UK HQ to Cost About $1.6B US
In numbers that are usually reserved for someone like the Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones, Google is spending a lot of money to build a UK headquarters in London.
The Guardian reports
Google has completed a £1bn property deal to move its UK headquarters to a brownfield site in London’s King’s Cross area.
The US technology giant has purchased a 2.4 acre site between King’s Cross and St Pancras stations and plans to build a seven and 11 storey complex due to be complete in 2016.
Google already has two central London offices – one in Victoria and one on St Giles High Street – from where staff are expected to be relocated.
Maybe this is one of the reasons why the company tops the best companies to work for list again this year?
