We chose to build within close proximity of Google, because this is the world’s least expensive real estate at this moment. It goes to Los Altos High School, is around 5 miles from Stanford and Google is completely rebuilding this entire neighbourhood. Google is building this huge campus but rather than building something like Apple Spaceship which fenced off the entire campus from the neighbourhood, Google’s approach is inclusive and they want to build a neighbourhood instead. Google wants to build publicly accessible pathways, Bikeways, Greenloops, widen the creeks. These bikeways, pathways will have european style cafes and Restaurants with open outside seating, Retail and Cinemas.
All this can be confirmed by from City’s planning department and from news articles from all the journalists who are closely following these happenings
