Google is building its own town

September 7, 2020

It is located near their Silicon Valley HQ and features parks, restaurants and housing.

Google has officially submitted plans for the development of a new campus. The new campus is located very close to its Silicon Valley HQ and the idea is that it is built in a town-like style so that Google employees can literally get to work in the mornings in less than 10 minutes. According to the plans, the town will feature close to 1 850 residential units, 20% of which will be earmarked for affordable housing offerings. This move has been criticized by some, as it comes at a weird time when the world of work is operating mostly remotely.
