Google’s new digs

Google is taking up a new home at the “Center of the Universe,” as Fremont is affectionately known, and its first invitation will be a toast with new neighbors at the pub across the street, said Fremont property owner Suzie Burke. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer first reported the plans this morning.

The Fremont digs at 501 N. 34th St. are across from the Red Door Alehouse. In fact, they are so close that previous tenant CapitalStream once joked they should build a walkway directly into the bar.

“I think they’re going to love being there and we’re going to love having them,” said Burke, president of Fremont Dock Co., which owns the land and 30 acres around it. Burke said the move-in date for Google, which already has Puget Sound offices in Kirkland, is unknown.

The 15,000-square-foot space, along the Lake Washington Ship Canal, is the entire third floor of the four-story building developed by Quadrant. Other tenants include Adobe Systems, Impinj and Getty Images.

Not bad for a former lumber mill town.
