Google to move out of Fremont into new complex on Lake Union

One of the largest companies in neighboring Fremont is planning to move into a larger space in South Lake Union. Today Google announced plans to build four buildings, developed by Vulcan, in prime real estate just south of the lake.


“We’ve loved being in the Fremont neighborhood but will need a bit more breathing room,” explained Clyde McQueen, Site Lead for Google Seattle. “We’ll still catch a view of Lake Union, just from a new location. We’re looking forward to walking, biking and riding the streetcar through the neighborhood.”

The plan is to finish the construction and move into the complex in 2019. Meanwhile, Google just opened its new Kirkland campus last month, and the company now employs 1,900 people in the Seattle area.
