Google leases San Francisco office for new engineers

Google leases San Francisco office for new engineers
 
 

Some want Google out of San Francisco

Google is sitting on a massive bank account worth hundreds of millions of dollars. The search giant uses the money for all sorts of things, including buying smaller firms. Recently the buying of some firms has meant Google ended up with some new engineers.

Google is now leasing a building in San Francisco to house the engineers that came with its recent purchases. The large building has 35,000 square feet of space and is located at the intersection of Alabama Street and 16th reports IBtimes.

The office can accommodate 200 workers and was previously used as the office for a newspaper. “When Google is buying companies, they don’t want to work in the big corporate building in San Francisco or Mountain View,” a source in the neighborhood told FT. “So they are acquiring something cool in the Mission where engineers want to work.”

Google and its new engineers might be happy about their San Francisco office, but some aren't. Some locals fear that placing affluent engineers in the city is driving up costs for the rest of the people in the area. Some protesters have gone so far as to leave signs telling Google and other firms to get out of the city. Google also operates a fleet of busses that it uses for workers and protesters have blocked those busses recently.

 

Google has bought a number of companies over the last year including Nest Labs, Boston Dynamics, and others. It's unclear which workers will be placed in the new building.
