Google buys London office complex for $1b
Google on Friday agreed to buy a central London building complex for $1 billion, but stressed it remained committed to new hybrid working patterns in the wake of Covid.
The tech titan will purchase the Central St Giles office site, where it is a tenant, for the equivalent of 872 million euros., reports AFP.
Google said it would give the site a multi-million-pound overhaul for flexible working patterns, including outdoor work spaces.
"This investment represents Google's continued confidence in the office as a place for in-person collaboration and connection," the group said in a statement.
