The Mountain View City Council approved a massive redevelopment plan that would see 10,000 new homes and 3.6 million square feet of office space built in the area around Google’s headquarters. Turning Mountain View’s North Bayshore from a suburban office park to a city-like campus could take as long as 10 years to accomplish. Local officials say it could be a growth model for a region that added 367,000 jobs and only 57,000 homes between 2010 and 2015. Google, which backed the plan, is already investing billions in new properties in San Jose and Sunnyvale. [Mercury News]
