Google wants to make an office in an airplane hangar
A gigantic airplane hangar north of Los Angeles International Airport was built in 1943 by Hughes Aircraft for one of the largest aircraft in the world, the Hughes H-4 Hercules with a wingspan of 98 meters (by the way, this record holds to this day).
The legendary building in the new era was used in the filming of several films, including Independence Day and Transformers. But soon peaceful jobs, computers, and thousands of Google employees will be available here.
According to information from many sources, Google is going to open another office and is negotiating the purchase of this aircraft hangar, writes WSJ.
Now the building is owned by the developer Ratkovich Co. This company has previously rebuilt the old Hughes Aircraft administrative buildings into modern offices, which are rented by many well-known IT companies, including YouTube employees.
The hangar consists of two compartments 230 meters long. It will fit about 28,000 m 2 of office space. If the transaction is completed, then Google will be able to make another unusual office building, which will differ from the dull business centers. The experience of such a creative is already there. For example, nearby in California in front of the office building Google built a giant binoculars .
From an airplane hangar, you can do something even more grandiose.
