Google to open two floors of office space in Kirkland

Google is adding the office space to accomadate growth in its Kirkland area.

Google has signed a lease for two more floors of offices in Kirkland, near its Kirkland campus.

The offices mark the third phase of Google’s expansion according to its development partners, SRM Development. The offices are at 503 6th St. S., just north of the main campus.

While representatives from Google did not answer questions about how much the company paid for the offices, they said they were planning to move into the offices in 2022. The company is also currently building out additional space at Central Way Plaza to accommodate growth.

Kirkland Mayor Penny Sweet said in a press release that the city is looking forward to the job growth Google would bring to the city.

“Google and SRM have been a wonderful partner in Kirkland. We look forward to the increased jobs that the expansion will bring to the community,” she said. “Google and SRM continue to make investments in our infrastructure that have enhanced mobility and the Cross Kirkland Corridor.”

Jim Rivard at SRM Development said this was phase three of Google’s office plans and that SRM is planning to develop more of the property into office space but it hasn’t been discussed whether that space would be for Google or other clients.
