Google has plans to announce the expansion of its Atlanta office.
The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports the tech giant will lease 200,000 square feet on the top floors of a new Midtown Atlanta tower and will add 500 jobs to the city. This more than triples the space Google currently occupies in Midtown.
“This is more evidence Atlanta is considered a pinnacle of software development talent,” John Yates, a partner in the technology practice at Morris Manning & Martin LLP told the Business Chronicle.
Google’s Atlanta move is part of a larger growth plan in tech hubs across the nation.
Last month, the company announced plans to expand its New York City campus. Google Hudson Square is reportedly a $1 billion project that will be 1.7 million square feet.
The company also purchased Chelsea Market in Manhattan for $2.4 billion with plans to add 300,000 square feet to the location.
