   Google has announced its plans to expand the employee numbers and the number of campuses in New York. Last Monday, Google shared the exciting news to spend $1 billion to create a 1.7-million-square-foot campus called "Google Hudson Square" in Manhattan's West Village neighborhood. The move will expand Google's presence near the Hudson River in New York City

   Google already has headquarters in New York, located on 8th street. And just recently purchased another place earlier this year. Google has decided to expand its headquarters in New York, though. Google shared that it has locked down three new locations. Two of them are on Hudson Street and a third one on Washington Street of New York. A post made by Google's chief financial officer, Ruth Porat, says they plan to start moving into the Hudson Street buildings in 2020 and the Washington Street building, called the St. John's Terminal, in 2022.

   Google already has a massive building in New York on 8th Street with 7,000 employees, and plan to have 7,000 more employees at the new campus. Earlier this year, Google purchased the Chelsea Market, across the street from the new campus, for $2.4 billion. Porat also posted that “Google will have capacity to more than double its headcount in New York over the next 10 years.”

    Google isn’t the only headquarter that is expanding its campuses in the upcoming years, Last month, Amazon announced it will open one of its new headquarters in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens in New York. Last week, Apple announced that it will invest $1 billion in a new campus in Austin, Texas and build new sites in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City, California.
