Submission + - Google Invests $1 Billion To Build New London HQ (ibtimes.com)

redletterdave writes: "Google just purchased a 2.4-acre plot in the King’s Cross Central development in London, where the company plans to build a brand-new, 1 million square foot office. Google reportedly invested about £650 million ($1.04 billion) on the property, which, when finished, will be valued at more than £1 billion ($1.6 billion). While Google traditionally leases its overseas offices, the company's decision to buy rather than rent in this case was likely tax motivated, since Google can’t repatriate its cash to the US without paying a hefty tax."
