For lobbyists at Google Inc., the commute to the U.S. Capitol will be much shorter next year.
The tech giant's Washington, D.C., office in spring 2014 will move from 1101 New York Ave. N.W. to 25 Massachusetts Ave. N.W., only blocks away from the Capitol, Steve Grigg, president and chief executive officer of Republic Properties Corp., said Wednesday. Republic Properties owns the Massachusetts Avenue building, which already counts General Motors Co., the American Medical Association, and the National Cable and Telecommunications Association among its tenants.
Google secured more than 54,000 of the nine-story building's 385,000 square feet for its new office. The space is about 25,000 more square feet than the company's current D.C. base, according to The Washington Post, which first reported the story.
