Update: Google has confirmed this report.
Google may be stepping up its presence in the Kitchener-Waterloo area.
In 2011 Google opened a 34,000 square foot facility in Kitchener at the Tannery but Techvibes has learned that Google may be taking on new office space in Kitchener.
Rumour on the street is that Google has signed a lease on the building at the southeast corner of Breithaupt Street and King Street.
According to a real estate listing, the 110-year-old heritage building includes 88,000 square feet of gross leasable area—but sources tell us that Google's move may include multiple buildings and up to 190,000 square feet of office space. Based on city averages for tech firms, Google's office expansion could fit up to 1,000 new employees.
Techvibes has contacted Google for confirmation but has not heard back.
