King's Cross Goods Yard selected by Google for new London headquarters

Google has confirmed that it will be constructing a new headquarters at the King’s Cross redevelopment site in London. The internet search company has bought a 2.4 acre plot at the 67 acre King’s Cross development with a view to completing a headquarters building to combine its London staff that are currently split between offices in Victoria and Holborn. Plans are to realise a 7-11 storey building by 2016 with Argent said to be inviting tenders for the 1million sq ft project.

King’s Cross is owned by developer Argent, whose Director David Partridge has commented: “It is a great privilege to take forward what we believe is London’s largest office requirement in recent years. The team led by Nick Searl have done a brilliant job to get this over the line and are very excited by the opportunity to design and build a world class, sustainable HQ for one of the world’s leading companies.”
