Google is leasing 1.3 million square feet at St. John’s Terminal as part of its Hudson Square campus. This week, the tech company closed the final deal after announcing plans late last year for Google Hudson Square, a $1 billion company campus at 550 Washington Street. The 1.7 million-square-foot campus will also occupy both 345 and 315 Hudson Street by 2020.

In 2018, Oxford Properties Group bought the St. John’s Terminal building for $700 million with partner Canada Pension Plan. The Toronto-based company began redeveloping the building into office space with the help of CookFox Architects, creating floor plates of more than 100,000 square feet and floor-to-ceiling views of the Hudson River. Construction is expected to be completed by 2022.

According to Crain’s, after Hudson Square campus opens, Google will become the city’s sixth-largest commercial tenant. By the end of 2018, there were about 7,000 Google employees in New York City and Google has pledged to double that number within the next ten years.

      Includes another space to make sure a certain build. From the writers to the image silently fumbles, as I, from earlier until late in thinking but on everything, is human.

      what language do you speak?

  2. What’s this? Some YIMBY authors and many other people spent their precious time over the last several months trying to convince us that New York City is an enemy of business and that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would perform blood magic to summon the apocalypse to destroy any new opportunities for companies to grow and flourish here. Now you’re telling me that Google is going to double the number of employees they have in New York City after recently making a $1 billion investment in new corporate real estate in a relatively neglected part of Manhattan?

    Ah – wait. It’s almost as if the Amazon dog-and-pony-show was ultimately Amazon’s own undoing and that many people pounced on the debacle so they could suffocate us with their political agendas.
