Google To Invest $9.5 Billion In U.S. Offices, Data Centers In 2022

Share post:

Google has unveiled plans to invest around $9.5 billion in its U.S. offices and data centers this year.

“It might seem counterintuitive to step up our investment in physical offices even as we embrace more flexibility in how we work. Yet we believe it’s more important than ever to invest in our campuses,” Google said in a statement.

The technology giant plans to open a new office in Atlanta while expanding its data center in Storey County, Nevada. Google said its investments will create at least 12,000 full-time jobs in 2022, with Nevada, Nebraska and Virginia among the states that will benefit from the investment.

Google has continued to make several investments in the acquisition of real estate, a move that suggests that the company isn’t ready to go fully remote unlike other organizations.

The company is not making a significant plan to work remotely, despite the pleas of its employees. Instead, Google will continue to invest in offices in its home state of California and continue to support affordable housing initiatives in the Bay Area as part of its $1 billion commitment to housing.
