Google’s home office is currently up for sale. Formerly known as the Spruce Goose Hangar, it was designed by aviator, Howard Hughes. Google plans to add three stories themselves, in order to pay tribute to Mr. Hughes. Google’s lease is good for the next 16 years, with a low monthly payment of $2.50 a square foot.

Key Takeaways:

  • The former Spruce Goose hangar in Playa Vista is up for sale, along with the opportunity to claim Google Inc. as a tenant.
  • Google plans to build offices on three stories and a mezzanine, aiming to pay “homage to the history of Hughes’ legacy while incorporating cutting edge design.
  • The cathedral-like structure contains two sections measuring 750 feet by 100 feet under a roof peaking at 72 feet – large enough for Hughes in the mid-1940s to build the Spruce Goose, a 200-ton cargo carrier also known as “Hercules.”
