Less than a month after signing for an extra 75,000 square feet at Chelsea Market, Google wants more. The tech giant is in talks to lease up to 600,000 square feet in Manhattan.

This level of office space expansion would mark an 80 percent growth in the company’s operations, the Wall Street Journal reported. Google’s New York offices currently are based at 111 Eighth Avenue and inside Chelsea Market.

Two potential new office outposts could be the New York Daily News’ former digs at Brookfield Office Properties’ 450 West 33rd Street, or the former freight rail terminal known as Eugene Grant’s St. John’s Terminal Building at 550 Washington Street.

In February, the Mountain View, Calif.-based company was working out a deal with Related Companies for 360,000 square feet at 85 10th Avenue, as previously reported. [WSJ] Mark Maurer
