Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) paid $US1 billion to buy a large business park near its Mountain View
Google has paid $US1 billion to buy a large business park near its Mountain View, California, headquarters, according to a Mercury News report on Monday.
The business park Google will acquire in the deal is larger than the Googleplex headquarters located a few blocks away, according to the report. The land parcel is also larger than the Google’s planned “Charleston East” campus that will feature futuristic domes and canopies.
The deal is the latest big-ticket real-estate purchase by Google and parent company Alphabet, as the internet giant’s aggressive expansion plans swell its headcount. As of September 30, Alphabet had 94,372 employees, an increase of roughly 16,000 employees from one year ago.
And with more than $US100 billion worth of cash and short-term securities on its balance sheet, Alphabet can afford to go on a real-estate shopping spree.
