Just one more step closer to Mountain View being renamed "GOOGLEVIEW"!!
Reminds me of 'Lost in Space'. Little 'air-cars' will fly through the chute someday. I would like to see the inside because the outside is amazing.
Over 1000 new cars a day into Shoreline-- how the heck is that going to work? The council has ZERO concern over traffic, and is absolutely in Googles pocket!
GoogleView is right. Is there anything that Google can do that isn't just the greatest thing ever?
I would rather have Google in the City than not. Name recognition is synonymous with the Google brand and Mountain View is mentioned most times Google is. I certainly am glad that they are in Mountain View and glad that they are making such an effort to plant roots in Mountain View. Economically it is great for the City. If traffic is peoples' only concern, then so be it. Google heavyhearted in Palo Alto does not sound as good as Google heavyhearted in Mountain View.
The latter line should read-- Google headquartered in Palo Alto does not sound as good as Google headquartered in Mountain View.G. ;)
I think Google should move their HQ to Cleveland...we would welcome you with open arms! we don't whine as much as bay area folks.
Who cares what you think. Sounds like you are whining.
How could the world's greenest building be in the suburbs?
As long as Google is totally inaccessible by public transit there's no way they could conceivably build the world's greenest building.
The green building will be there to be close to their private airport at Moffett Field, where they keep all their green airplanes.
Google is MV's bread and butter, sugar daddy.
No, Mr MV, its not. Revenue generated in shoreline stays in shoreline. We get extra traffic on the west side of the freeway, and the payoff is newer paddleboats at the lake.
i think you guys are very intelligent for creating a wonderful web cast like Google. =]
keep up the good work!!
im doing a History Day project on you guys!
The claims that this building will have no carbon footprint are surely over stated. Every act of construction requires resources. A buildng of this size consumes a great deal of energy and material just in its construction. Additionally the character of this architecture has an arrogant and site dominating quality that is more about ego and monument than sensitive sustainability.
Be wary of the green smoke screen.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
