John Cook at the Seattle PI reports that Google "is now taking a serious look at gobbling up nearly all of a 20-story office building under construction in downtown Bellevue."
If true, this would be a substantial expansion for Google in the Seattle area. John noted that "Google could house more than 1,000 employees" in the new building, nearly an order of magnitude increase from their current Seattle area presence.
Many of those hires probably would come from nearby Microsoft, University of Washington computer science, and Amazon.com.
