Google's £1B HQ in London gets planner's approval

The planning committee of the London Borough of Camden approved Aug. 10 Google Inc.'s proposed £1 billion King's Cross headquarters, Construction Enquirer reported.

According to the Aug. 11 report, the main contractor for the project, Lendlease Corp. Ltd., will commence works on the London site in 2018 under a deal believed to be worth £350 million.

Upon completion, the 11-story building will comprise more than 1 million square feet of space, of which Google will use about 650,000 square feet to house roughly 4,000 staff.

Plans for the internet giant's headquarters, which were pushed back a year to pave way for a more ambitious design, also include a gym, pool, multi-use games area, events center and a landscaped roof garden.
