Google has picked up nearly 1 lakh sq ft office space in managed and flexible office space provider Smartworks coworking center in Pune’s Mundhwa locality for a total tenure of over 36 months.
The new office at commercial tower Amar Pristine 81 (AP81) near Koregaon Park Annex will be utilized by Google to operate its cloud computing business and is expected to house more than 1,300 employees. The deal has been signed and Google will start operating from this new office anytime soon. As part of the lease agreement the company has also received signage rights.
Currently Google has four offices in India including its country headquarters in Hyderabad. Last year the company extended its 3-year lease on office space spread over around 6 lakh sq ft in Hyderabad following an agreement to lease 1.3 mn sq ft in Bangalore.
