San Jose Mercury News: Google expected to bring up to 150 jobs to Alameda, Jauary 7, 2015


Up to 150 jobs are expected to be created as Google expands at the former Alameda Naval Air Station, according to city officials.

The technology giant, which has been at the former military base since it acquired Makani Power in 2013, secured unanimous approval from the City Council on Tuesday to lease the 65,400-square-foot building at 1190 W. Tower Ave.

The four-year lease calls for a monthly base rent between $26,160 and $34,008 and gives Google five extension options for periods of three years each.

Google also has first rights for negotiating to purchase the building at the former Navy base, now known as Alameda Point.
