I worked in those buildings during their recent renovation. They were a delight until all the indoor planting was paved over with concrete. The buildings also suffer from extremely poor space usage; massive interior two-story hallways, multiple large atrium/lobbies. I wouldn't be surprised if Google mowed them down and rebuilt. Or gutted them out to a shell and rebuilt the inside.

BTW, Mozilla is located in one of the buildings.

Is it too early to change Mtn. View's name to Googleville?

Now the next step for Google is to purchase all the homes in Mtn. View and use them for their purposes to expand themselves. How about all the apartments as well. Then Mtn. View can be called THE CITY OF GOOGLE.

Google should give all Old time MV residents $10,000,000. ea. for their property.
