Details Emerge On Google's Kirkland Office
Remember the announcement that Google was opening a new office in Kirkland, right near Microsoft's? Well, Gary Price at Search Engine Watch notices a King County Journal article that has the details pf the offices, pictured above right. The office will be located at 720 Fourth Ave., and will continue to expand until it reaches 46,000 square feet and employes 200 "'high-level' software engineers and programmers" by November 2006. Google will hold a housewarming party on November 18, but some employees have been there since October 27. The offices are only 5.6 miles from Microsoft headquarters, and will function great as a recruiting post. The building is known locally as the FileNet building, after the company currently occupying most of the structure. Google will supplant Filenet in terms of employees, since Filenet has only 180.
