Vast expansion of worker base prompts necessity of new campus grounds
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/01/2013 -- The Google company has stated that it will begin work on building a new corporate campus within the next year.
The new campus is adjacent to the Silicon Valley headquarters that is already being used as the housing facility as a headquarters.
"We are beginning construction on our new Bayview Campus, which is a key to our growth and another sign of our commitment to the area," a Google spokesman said in a statement.
The Google headquarters in Mountain View was previously held by Silicon Graphics. According to sources, the new campus would be build on land that is leased by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
A statement made in 2008, Google noted it had agreed on 42 acres of land that was held by NASA Research. The company stated it planned to build up to 1.2 million square feet of office and research space in a campus-style setting.
Google has now stated that the time for phase one is now, and will begin in 2013. Under the terms of agreement, Google would provide NASA with rent of $3.66 million annually.
The Plans for the new campus were first detailed in an issue of Vanity Fair, and stated the campus would be made of nine-buildings that are connected by bridges of 1.1 million square foot.
Google recently reported that it houses 37,544 employees in total world-wide. In 2008, the company had 20,222 employees in total. That kind of expansion means the necessity for up-to-date facilities.
The employee count for the last year did not intended to include the Motorola workers, which was acquired by Google for $12.4
