Googling from Seattle

The rumours are true.  Google is officially both on the Eastside and Westside now.  Now they could make me an offer I couldn't refuse...  I wouldn't prefer to work in Kirkland but even Fremont would be a jaunt more than Downtown.

Google, based in Mountain View, Calif., plans to sublease about 60,000 square feet from Getty Images at the Waterside Building on North 34th Street.

That amount of space would accommodate about 240 workers, according to commercial real-estate brokers.

Google now has an engineering center in Kirkland and sales offices at another building on North 34th Street in Fremont. The new space will be used for additional R&D engineers, said Sunny Gettinger, a Google spokeswoman. She declined to say how many people Google plans to add in Fremont.

"Seattle is just very rich in engineering talent, We're running out of space in our other offices there, and we're continuing to grow," Gettinger said.
