Mountain View-based Google is growing its presence in England. Its new London headquarters could create up to 3,000 new jobs by 2020.
The London headquarters will be built next to Google’s King’s Cross building, creating a three-building campus, reports Business Insider. Google currently occupies 380k SF at 6 Pancras Square, an 11-story campus, which offers free food, massages, cooking classes and a 90-meter running track. A second building to be leased by Google is under construction, and Google will occupy the space by 2018.
The new 650k SF headquarters will be designed by Heatherwick Studios and Bjarke Ingels Group. Google’s entire London campus will house 7,000 employees. [BI]
