Google is expanding in L.A., the company announced Tuesday. The company has leased the current site of a shopping mall in West Los Angeles that it will turn into a 584,000 square-foot office campus, according to a press release.
The move is the latest office expansion for Google, which just last month announced a $1 billion investment in a new office in New York City. Amazon and Apple have also been expanding their presence outside of the tech hubs of Silicon Valley and Seattle, with Amazon selecting New York City and Northern Viriginia as the dual sites of its new "headquarters" and Apple announcing a new campus in Austin.
The space at Westside Pavilion will be redeveloped beginning later this year, Google said in a press release. Google's roughly 14-year lease would begin after construction is completed on the "One Westside" construction, scheduled to end in 2022.
