Talking Points Memo reports:
Google today is announcing plans to invest over $1 billion in capital improvements to create a new 1.7-million-square-foot campus in Lower Manhattan, dubbed “Google Hudson Square.”
As part of the New York City expansion, Google and Alphabet Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat said in a blog post out this morning that the company “will have the capacity to more than double its staff” in the city over the next 10 years.
The company plans to start moving into two properties on Hudson Street by 2020, and into a newly created building on Washington Street by 2022.
Google already has a massive office in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
