Google Changed Its Mind About Renting An Office In Dublin
Google has revised plans to lease an office with an area of almost 19 thousand square meters in Dublin, which could accommodate 2 thousand employees, Bloomberg reported.
"After much consideration, Google has decided not to lease this building now," the Google press service told the Agency. The company did not explain the reason for the decision.
The company negotiated the lease of office space in a seven-story building that was originally occupied by the Irish Postal service. The building is located in the port Docklands, where the offices of American technology companies are located after renovation, which is why this area is often called the "Silicon Docks."
In announcing its decision, Google stressed that the company remains committed to Ireland and intends to continue to "invest in its Irish operations."
According to experts interviewed by Bloomberg, Google's decision reflects a situation where "many employees may work from home even after the end of the pandemic." Recall that Google, at the end of July, said that it would extend the work of employees from home until July 2021.
