The new building will be one million square foot building will house all Google’s UK staff, with relocations from offices in Victoria and Holborn, the report states.
The new building is expected to be completed in late 2016, if given the go ahead. Approximately 35,000 people are expected to work in the wider development of King’s Cross once regeneration is complete, the report states.
Dan Cobley, Google UK’s managing director, said: “Building our new headquarters in King’s Cross is good for Google and good for London.
“We’re committed to the UK and to playing a role in the regeneration of this historic area.”
Director Simon Allford said: “The architectural approach, which has taken inspiration from King’s Cross and St Pancras International railway stations, complements the local area’s strong industrial heritage and will be a building London can be proud of.”
