Google is opening three new offices in Canada and they look unreal

On February 6, Google announced that it will open three new offices in Canada — all expected to open sometime in 2022.

The offices will be located in Waterloo, Toronto, and Montreal.

Google has existing facilities in all three cities, but will replace the offices in Toronto and Montreal with newer models.

The American tech giant currently employs about 1,500 people in their Canadian offices, but will more than triple that number by 2022, expanding to 5,000 employees.

Senior Vice President Ruth Porat said that Google "is pleased to play a part in Canada’s ongoing digital transformation."

The Toronto office — which will be located at 65 King Street East — boasts 18 floors of futuristic glass windows. The building will also be equipped with outdoor terraces, bike stalls, retail stores, and cutting-edge technology.

The design is a collaboration between IBM Group — the masterminds behind the Ryerson Jarvis Street residence — and local powerhouse WZMH Architects.

The Montreal office will be located on Viger Avenue, and the Kitchener-Waterloo office will be located across from its current offices on Breithaupt Street.

Mayor of Toronto John Tory says he is "proud" that Google recognizes the importance of growing its presence in Ontario.

He added that Google's expansion means "more jobs and more investment" in Toronto.

Toronto, Montreal, and Waterloo all rank among the top cities for tech in Canada.
