Google the city of Bothell and you'll find the Internet company's newest location.
"We've relocated a group of employees from our Kirkland office to a nearby facility," a Google spokesperson said.
On Wednesday, the company released news that it plans to move into a facility at the Schnitzer North Creek Technology Campus. It could employ 840 workers. Google's spokesperson said the company couldn't yet divulge a timeframe as to when it would move into its new location.
Google also has campuses in Kirkland and Fremont, which employ more than 850 workers. The company is presently hiring for its new office.
According to Bothell Mayor Mark Lamb, “We are working hard to bring jobs and opportunity to Bothell and make our city an example of innovative policies that work in both good times and bad. Google is one of fastest growing companies in the world. Its decision to join so many first-rate companies here in Bothell is confirmation that our strategy for economic development is working."
He added that businesses prefer to locate in well-managed, fiscally conservative cities that give them a predictable tax and regulatory environment in which to grow. "The 840 Google jobs that will be coming here will provide years of economic benefit and an amazing new energy for our city."Contact Bothell Reporter Reporter Andy Nystrom at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-425-483-3732 (ext 5050).
