US: Google joins other big tech in East Coast expansion

 |  December 17, 2018

Google’s New York City office is already its largest outside the San Francisco Bay Area, but on Monday, December 17, the company announced plans to spend over US$1 billion to double the size of its New York workforce to more than 14,000. The company will build a new campus in the Hudson Square neighborhood, about a mile south of its current New York headquarters in the Chelsea neighborhood.

Over the past few months, several technology companies have expanded beyond the West Coast. Last month, Amazon announced it would add a total of 50,000 jobs in two new campuses—one in New York’s Long Island City neighborhood, and the other in Crystal City in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC. Last week, Apple announced it would expand its 6,000-person Austin campus by another 5,000 workers, with the potential to add an additional 10,000 people later on.
