Google is Coming to Venice!


From the LA Times:

The Internet search giant will take over more than 100,000 square feet in three buildings, including one designed by Frank Gehry. Its lease coincides with an announcement that it would hire more than 6,000 workers this year.


Google representatives confirmed Tuesday night that the company had signed a lease for the properties, saying its employees would begin moving into the offices this year. Google’s new complex of buildings will have more square footage than its current facilities in Santa Monica, where the largest of the three buildings has 45,000 square feet and houses 300 employees.

“I am ecstatic that Google will be opening offices in Venice,” said Councilman Bill Rosendahl, whose district includes the properties, in a statement. “I am particularly happy that its large number of employees will be contributing to our local economy. This should be a huge boon to the restaurants and shops on Main Street, Rose Avenue and Abbot Kinney Boulevard.”
