As Google employees return to campus life after more than two years of remote work, the company has a swanky new office for employees in New York.

Google has officially opened a new campus on a pier on the Hudson River, located on New York’s largest rooftop.

The 630,000 square foot campus at Pier 57 consists of three buildings and accommodates approximately 450 employees. The space, which includes a two-acre rooftop park, will include a new public food hall, a community space, and a tech-heavy public classroom that will offer environmental education programs.

At a grand opening ceremony Monday, Alphabet and Google chief financial officer Ruth Porat said the company is ahead of schedule for the grand opening, citing concerns about hiring more employees in New York.

“It’s a magnet for diverse talent,” Porat said of New York, according to the New York Business Journal. “It’s that nervousness that makes New York the magic that New York is and that’s what’s really exciting for us to continue to build on.”

The company has relied more on the mixed-use model as it has been under pressure to provide benefits to surrounding residents. Last year, the city of San Jose approved Alphabet’s largest campus — a sprawling, mixed-use facility spanning 80 acres in the heart of California’s third-largest city. This campus will include 7.3 million square feet of office space and some high-density housing, and nearly half of the site will be devoted to community spaces and parks developed by multiple partners.

Google said last week that its US investments in offices and data centers in the US will total about $9.5 billion in 2022, including expansions in New York. The company plans to develop an additional 1.7 million square feet of office space in the Hudson Square neighborhood, a company spokesman said.

This month, the company began enforcing a return to the office for most employees after two years of remote work during the pandemic. The company has asked employees to return to physical offices at least three days a week for “hybrid” work.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul and New York Mayor Eric Adams also spoke at the ribbon-cutting event this week.

“As much as we want to talk about the post-pandemic world, the numbers are rising, so be smart,” Hochul said during the ceremony. “We don’t want closures”
