Google today closed a deal to purchase 111 Eighth Avenue (also known as 76 Ninth Avenue). “We’ve closed a deal with the partnership of Taconic Investment Partners, Jamestown Properties and the New York State Common Retirement Fund to purchase 111 Eighth Avenue (also known as 76 Ninth Avenue). As part of the deal, we’ve retained Taconic Management Company to continue the leasing oversight services and management of the building on our behalf, providing the same level of customer service the building’s tenants have come to expect. We believe that this’s a great real estate investment in a thriving neighborhood and a fantastic city.”
“Now we’ve more than 2,000 Googlers working on a variety of projects in both sales and engineering–and we’re hiring across the board. Like the city, our New York office is a melting pot of cultures and ideas–it’s home to Googlers from more than 35 countries who speak more than 40 languages,” said Google.
