Hello New York, Hello Google! There have been rumors over the past few weeks about Google buying some real estate in New York and today they announced it publicly on the Google blog. The post shared the story of how Google’s one salesman used to work out of a Starbucks and now they are buying a $1.8 billion building and investing in New York. The property they are buying is 111 Eighth Avenue – a former Port Authority building. It is a huge building with 500,000 square feet of office space for Google plus has some additional tenants. I wonder how many Starbucks it is home to.
