Google confirms big expansion of Fulton Market offices

Google will add a big block of office space next year in the Fulton Market district, indicating that there’s no letup to the company’s growth in Chicago.

The technology giant has leased about 132,000 square feet in a 12-story building that Sterling Bay has under construction at 210 N. Carpenter St., Google and the developer said Wednesday. Google, which has grown to more than 1,000 employees in Chicago, said it plans to begin moving workers into six floors of the building next fall.
