Google announce billion pound New York campus

Google is building $1 billion campus in New York's West Village.

The tech giant is increasing its presence in the Big Apple by employing 7,000 more people, doubling in size.

The new spaces will take over the St. John's Terminal building on Washington Street, plus two buildings on Hudson Street.

This comes after Google took over the Chelsea Market building in March.

Ruth Porat, Google's Chief Financial Officer, said in a statement released to The New York Times:

"New York City continues to be a great source of diverse, world-class talent.

"That's what brought Google to the city in 2000, and that's what keeps us here."

Google's plans to takeover New York, come after rivals Amazon announced they are bringing 25,000 employees to their site in in Long Island City in Queens.
