Google announces their plans on expanding their New York City workforce and build another campus with at least $1 billion investment.
Google has been expanding their workforce in New York City, trying to double its headcount for the next decade. The tech giant company headquartered at New York City is said to be the largest outside the San Francisco Bay Area. It occupies an entire long city block.
After Amazon said that they will be adding 50,000 jobs in their new campus and Apple adding 10,000 people, Google is also making its own expansion as well. The search giant is planning to invest $1 billion on their new campus in New York City. The new hub will be called “Google Hudson Square”.
The Google Hudson Square will serve as the home for Google’s New York Global Business Organization and will at least add 7,000 more jobs in New York.
Ruth Porat, Senior Vice President and CFO of Google, said on his blog post that New York City continues to be a great source of diverse, world-class talent and that’s what brought Google to the city and that’s what keeps the company in the city.
The search giant said that its new campus in Hudson Street will open in 2020 and will be 1.7 million square foot.
