Furthering its commitment to growing and investing in the Boulder community, Google has purchased the office space at the Rêve development at 30th and Pearl Street. The office space will serve as an extension of Google’s Pearl Place Campus, which is located across the street.
“With the acquisition of this new office space, we aim to continue Google’s thoughtful and organic growth in the great city of Boulder,” said Google Boulder’s site lead and senior engineering director Bhavna Chhabra. “We’re proud to have called Colorado home since 2006 and we are committed to growing our local workforce and being a helpful community neighbor for many more years to come.”
The six-acre Rêve project, which broke ground in 2019, features rental apartments, retail space and office space. Google will maintain its existing office presence in Boulder, including the Pearl Place Campus and the 3333 Walnut Campus. Google also completed construction on Building C, the third building at the Pearl Place Campus, in 2020. Building C will feature office space and publicly accessible community space.
“This investment in Colorado is a sign that our economy is building back better, and is the best place to live, work and play,” said Governor Jared Polis. “Innovation and creativity define Colorado’s tech industry and we’re glad to see further investment creating good jobs in our state.”
Google Boulder employees were given the option of returning to the office starting in late July 2021, or they can continue working from home until January 2022. Google currently has 1,500+ employees in Colorado representing a variety of teams in sales, recruiting, engineering, and product management for Google Cloud, Google Maps and Google Payments.
In March, Google released its Economic Impact Report, sharing that 47,900 businesses, nonprofits, publishers, creators and developers in Colorado used Google products to increase their online presence and connect with the people and communities they serve — generating $6.56 billion in economic activity in 2020.
