Google has modified its plans to include 7,000 residential units for Google’s campus in north Mountain View. Google has proposed that 20% of the homes (1,400) be “affordable” homes. That is double the number of affordable homes already in Mountain View. The plans include 3.1 million square feet of office space and 265,000 square feet of local shops. Google is continuing to expand its presence in Silicon Valley.
Google was reported on Dec 14, 2020, to have notified its employees to live within commuting distance of their assigned office. They will be expected to show up three days a week. Google has delayed working-in-person until Sept 1, 2021, for its employees.
