A Googleplex in Michigan?

About ten days ago I posted an item about Google looking for a large amount of office space in Boston to build a Googleplex. That article also mentioned that other cities were being discussed.

Today, an article in the Michigan Business Review lets us know that Ann Arbor is one of the other locations.

Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan where Larry Page attended school. Page was also a commencement speaker at the U of M this year.

One search reportedly focuses on up to 200,000 square feet for a “Googleplex,” described as a technology/call center that could land either in Ann Arbor or a handful of other cities.

This article also points out that Google is also looking for 40,000 square feet, “for work related to the company’s work at the University of Michigan as Google digitizes the entire library collection.”
