It’s official! Google, Inc announced plans to move to Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. Cost savings and extra space is probably driving the move from their current River North location, to the Fulton Market-Randolph district.
A Google spokeswoman confirmed that its 500-plus employees will move to the former Fulton Market Cold Storage building at 1000 W. Fulton. The lease was signed for 200,000 square feet at the 10-story former storage warehouse…so the deal is sealed! It’s anticipated move should happen by 2015, which is when their current lease expires.
