Google Said To Buy New York Office Building [online.wsj.com]

Google Inc. has signed a contract to buy the building that houses its New York City offices, in a deal that values the property at close to $1.9 billion, according to people familiar with the matter.

The deal for the massive 2.9-million-square-foot property at 111 Eighth Avenue is the biggest for a single building in the U.S. this year.

I'm not surprised, they needed more space for more employees.

Now all the tin foil hatters are going to start clamoring about Google expanding into the real estate business...

@LifeinAsia Haters are Gona Hate any how :-) but seriously its makes sense commercial property is depressed now so it makes sense to invest in property instead of renting - I really must top up my Property Investments's in my ISA

I agree. Most people don't seem to realize the amount of real estate that many companies own. It's been joked that McDonalds is more of a real estate holding company than a fast food company.

@LifeinAsia

quite I remember a briefing in BT about how the company had very low borowing and could defend against a take over just by revalueing its property portfolio.

unfortunately After Ian left they appointed spivs to the board who sold off the property portfolio for short term gain - and then repeated the fiasco with the incompetetnt they had running GS.
