So much for the home office: Google bought an office in London for $ 1 billion

Pandemic is a pandemic there, in the long run the place of work is the office – at least at the English subsidiary of Google.

Google’s English subsidiary is not particularly confident in the long-term telecommuting, at least as indicated by the fact that the UK subsidiary bought the property in central London this week, in which it was previously a tenant. For the Central Saint Giles office building, the search firm paid £ 730 million, or roughly $ 1 billion.

Adjacent to Covent Garden, one of London’s busiest neighborhoods, the building is now undergoing refurbishment and major refurbishment, with a number of meeting rooms suitable for hybrid work, individual offices providing more personal space and open-air work areas.

Google’s newly acquired office building, along with a new complex next to King’s Cross in London, will not go unused, as Google has announced plans to expand its current 6,400 staff in the UK capital to ten,000 in the short term.
