Google is reportedly shelling out $1.77 billion in cash for its new office at 111 Eighth Avenue, which was reported as sold earlier this month, according to the New York Post. Google will occupy 550,000 square feet in the 2.9 million-square-foot Chelsea building, located between 15th and 16th streets. Douglas Harmon of Eastdil Securities marketed the building, which reportedly had numerous competing buyers. But, according to Dan Fasulo of commercial real estate tracking firm Real Capital Analytics, Google’s ability to pay cash helped it succeed in the purchase. “There were a bunch of global investors salivating over the building, but at the end of the day, a corporate user can always pay more than an investor,” Fasulo said. CB Richard Ellis’ Darcy Stacom, Bill Shanahan and Steve Siegel advised Google. (note: clarification made) [Post]
