Google to lease 200,000 square feet in new downtown Austin tower

Search engine giant Google Inc. is set to establish a major presence in downtown Austin, with plans to lease more than 200,000 square feet of a 29-story office tower being built as part of the redevelopment of the site that once housed the Thomas C. Green Water Treatment Plant.

Google did not say if the lease indicates plans to increase its employee numbers in Austin. The company has declined to release its current Austin headcount. Worldwide, the company has more than 50,000 employees.

Google currently has three Austin locations, on North Mopac Boulevard (Loop 1), at University Park just north of downtown, and its Google Fiber space in what was formerly the Austin Children’s Museum downtown. The new space will consolidate the employees on North Mopac and University Park, while Google Fiber will remain at the Children’s Museum location three blocks from the new site, Interiano said.

The new office tower where Google will lease space will have almost 490,000 square feet of office space and just over 11,000 square feet restaurant and retail space on the ground floor. It is due to be completed in early 2017.

The office building where Google will locate is under construction marks the second phase of Trammell Crow’s development, which is transforming the former Green Water industrial site into a mix of residences, offices, hotel rooms, shops and restaurants. The site is bounded by San Antonio, Nueces, Second and Cesar Chavez streets.
