Google’s new Boulder headquarters recently opened with flourish — and a pizza oven, an arcade games room and a climbing wall.
The company’s Colorado outpost, now numbering more than 700 employees, has many of the perks of its Silicon Valley mothership. Colorful Google bikes? Check. Massage and yoga rooms. Yup. Dog run? Of course. Plus there’s a public bike path that intersects the campus, allowing curious non-Googlers to get a glimpse of the tech life.
The 110,000-square-foot facility, at 30th and Pearl streets, is only one leg of a three-unit campus that was first proposed three years ago. Google, which has been leasing multiple offices spaces to make room for an expanding workforce, said the $131 million investment is intended to eliminate those constraints. The second building is expected to start construction soon. The campus, called Pearl Place, eventually will consist of 330,000 square feet of office space with room for about 1,500 workers.
