Google Continues to Expand in San Jose
"Google has bought three office buildings in north San Jose from Cisco and struck a deal to buy a fourth — an unexpected move that sets the stage for another major job hub for the search giant in the Bay Area’s largest city," reports George Avalos.
"With the latest transactions, Google now has laid the foundations, through a wave of property purchases and leasing deals, for at least four distinct — and huge — employment centers in San Jose, including a transit-oriented development called Downtown West that would dramatically reshape the city’s urban core."
