Google Confirms New London Office Space
The rumours are true! Google has confirmed that it will be moving from its current office space in Victoria to new premises in KingΓÇÖs Cross.
GoogleΓÇÖs lease expires on its existing offices on Buckingham Palace Road in 2016, at which point the search giant will relocate to 725,000 sq.ft. of office space currently under development behind KingΓÇÖs Cross railway station.
An exclusive agreement has been signed with property developers Argent and Google has appointed architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris to design the new space.
Sharing the complex with the likes of BNP Paribas, Camden Council and Central St Martins, Google will inhabit a five-building campus in its chosen location beside the new KingΓÇÖs Cross ticket hall, due to open later this month.
The total 67-acre development will also house flats, retail outlets and restaurants in an area that was previously derelict. Half of the total space is owned by KingΓÇÖs Cross developers, Hermes, as part of the KingΓÇÖs Cross Partnership. The other half is owned by former landowners DHL and London & Continental Railways.
