Google plans to open its largest campus ever in San Jose

June 09, 2017 06:29PM

Even by the tech giant’s own standards, this is big. Google is in talks to open a massive 6 million square-foot campus in the downtown Diridon Station district of San Jose, California. The proposed offices would be almost double the size of Google’s existing campus at nearby Mountain View. The mixed-use project could breathe life into the Diridon district — currently a hodge-podge of vacant lots, industrial buildings, a few stores and small offices — with 20,000 new jobs. On June 20, the San Jose City Council will consider a proposal to create an exclusive relationship with Google, in order to allow the company to buy city-owned properties. [Mercury News]
