Google may not be dropping as much dough to build its new U.K. headquarters in the heart of London as Apple is spending on its new ‘spaceship’ headquarters in California, but the $1 billion the technology giant will shell out will still produce an impressive structure.
Renderings of the upcoming Google headquarters hit the Internet today courtesy of Building Design Online.
The 11-storey glass and steel building will be 330 meters long and will be awarded an outstanding BREEAM certification — a top honor for “green” buildings.
The facility, which reportedly will have a garden on its roof, will house restaurants and stores on its first floor.
The project, to be completed in 2017, is expected to be valued at $1.6 billion.
