The search behemoth has forked out £1bn to build a 11-storey complex on a 2.4 acre site between King’s Cross and St Pancras stations, work is due to be completed in 2016.

The new site will house Google employees who are currently working in the company’s offices in Victoria and Holborn.

Matt Brittin, vice-president for northern and central Europe at Google, told the Financial Times: “This is a big investment by Google, we’re committing further to the UK – where computing and the web were invented. It’s good news for Google, for London and for the UK.”
