Google currently employs about 300 people in 60,000 square feet of space on the third floor of the Tannery building at Charles and Victoria streets.

Earlier this year, it signed a 10-year lease, with an option for another 10 years, for 185,000 square feet of space in the Breithaupt Block development to accommodate its growing local workforce.
