New Google UK HQ to Cost About $1.6B US

Google MoneyIn 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?

    Not surprising at all because the London’s multicultural market whose population doubles in size every year is so invaluable for such a giant.

    Anyway, I’d rather focus on generating my own half a billion dollars in 2013.
