Ann Arbor Area Community News
While Google declined to comment on any firm intent, the Detroit News reports that they’ve been scouting Ann Arbor for a large chunk of real estate:
Ann Arbor may become home to a new technology center for up to 1,000 employees from Google Inc., the Internet search engine giant that was recently hired to digitize the University of Michigan’s 19 libraries.
Boston and Boulder are mentioned speculatively as other possible locations. Detroit, sadly, is not mentioned except in the context that Ann Arbor has the lowest commercial vacancies in the region.
