A couple of months ago it was announced that Apple would be expanding its headquarters with the spaceship-looking Campus 2, and it looks like it won’t be alone in the expansion process. Today it’s been reported that Google will also be expanding with the purchase of a 240,000 square-foot office complex near its headquarters in Mountain View. While Google confirmed the purchase of the office, the company declined to disclose how much it cost.
Called The Landmark, the new office complex is said to house 960 workers at the new office – a far cry from Apple’s humongous Campus 2 that was built for up to 13,000 employees. Google has been snapping up a lot of real estate and properties in the area recently, and The Landmark probably isn’t going to be the last of the company’s purchases. No word on whether Google will be making some renovations to the place, but I wouldn’t put the conversion of the office complex into a green-friendly zone (with solar panels and windmills) past the company.
