Google searching for new offices at Kings Cross?
The Telegraph reports that Google are discussing a £200 million deal to occupy 700,000 square feet of office space at Kings Cross. Currently the search engine occupies 121,000 sq ft of office space in London at Victoria across two buildings, so this move would be a significant upgrade.
The Kings Cross development that Google are looking to become a part of is a huge 8 million sq ft mixed-use development next door to the Kings Cross tube station. The plans involve building 3.4 million sq ft of office space and 2,000 new homes in the area.
The scheme is a joint development by construction firms Hermes, Argent, DHL and London and Continental Railways, and work is expected to begin in 2012, after the Olympics.
The positive news about this project is that it will create new construction jobs in London and the Kings Cross area. The possible arrival of an esteemed company such as Google would be a great boost to the project and attract other big-spending companies to the area.
