Google is in preliminary talks to lease a portion of the former Marine and Aviation Building at Pier 57 — across the street from the former Nabisco factory in Chelsea it recently agreed to occupy.

The Mountain View, Calif.-based tech giant, which opened its first office in New York in 2000, now has about 4,000 employees in the city, the Wall Street Journal reported. Google controls more than 3.5 million square feet of office space in New York City.

Scott Rechler’s RXR Realty and Youngwoo & Associates teamed up in September to convert 200,000 to 300,000 square feet of space on the pier into offices. Youngwoo initially proposed redeveloping the site as a shopping center called SuperPier. Pier 57 was built as a marine terminal in 1952.

In Novemer, Google officially signed for 180,000 square feet at 85 10th Avenue, owned by Vornado Realty Trust and the Related Companies. The tenant plans to take a total of 360,000 square feet there after the federal government vacates next year. [WSJ]Mark Maurer
