Google signed a lease for 132,000 square feet in a Fulton Market office tower being built by Sterling Bay.

The tech giant, which has more than 1,000 employees in Chicago, will take six floors in the developer’s project at 210 North Carpenter Street next fall, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The company’s 372,000-square-foot Midwest headquarters is housed just to the north at 1000 West Fulton Street, a former cold storage facility redeveloped by Sterling Bay.

Google’s presence in the neighborhood has helped transform Fulton Market, and a number of developers are launching projects at properties surrounding its headquarters.

CBRE’s Kyle Kamin represented Google in the lease at 210 North Carpenter.

Google recently opened a pop-up Hardware Store in Bucktown to sell its products, and reportedly plans a permanent retail store in Fulton Market. [Chicago Tribune] — John O’Brien
