Looks like Google‘s got a taste for NYC’s sweet industrial buildings. The search engine giant has just scooped up yet another lease on a massive building at 85 Tenth Avenue, adjacent to the ever-popular High Line. The beautiful brick building, a former Nabisco cookie factory, is a whopping 180,000 square feet and is the latest acquisition in a string of real estate deals for the company.
Besides taking over the lease of the former factory, Google will also nearly double the size of its 15th Street office space. The company is waiting for the current tenant, the federal government, to vacate at the end if its lease in 2015.
Google’s new lease on Tenth Ave. is simply the latest in the company’s fast-growing NYC presence. The search giant bought its first NYC building, now called the Google Building, on Eighth Avenue back in 2010. Now, its offices currently span three blocks in Chelsea between Eighth Avenue and the West Side Highway and 15th and 16th streets.
