Google closing in on Mayfield site

The structure that once housed the region's first indoor mall looks as if it will be leased by Google in a move that suggest the search giant's expansion in Mountain View isn't slowing down.

According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Google has been listed as the lessee of the former site of the Mayfield Mall — a 500,000-square-foot complex.

The article in the Business Journal, published Aug. 15, said that the deal has yet to be finalized. However, as reported by the Voice Google has been buying up Mountain View office space like gangbusters recently.

The site had been planned to be used for a housing complex, but plans changed last year and developers announced they planned to re-use the existing buildings as an office campus.

Google could not be reached for comment.
