Google is set to take 360,000 square feet at the Related Companies’ 85 10th Avenue. The search giant will move into the 540,000-square-foot former Nabisco factory between 15th and 16th streets between Chelsea Market in the High Line.
Related has not formally put the space on the market and the deal is being brokered on both sides by CBRE on a strictly need-to-know basis, the New York Post reported.
Google has been trying to expand at its New York headquarters at nearby 111 Eighth Avenue, and has unsuccessfully tried to nudge out fellow tenants including Nike, according to the Post. [NYP] – Hiten Samtani
