Google Canada unveils new Kitchener headquarters Thursday
More than 350 engineers expected to work in 185,000-square-foot office
Google Canada will unveil a new headquarters for its national development team in Kitchener, Ont., on Thursday.
The tech giant's thumbprint in the region has grown since opening its first office there in 2005.
The company says more than 350 engineers will work on Google products in the new 185,000-square-foot office.
The new workspace is located in the Breithaupt Block, a former rubber manufacturing facility that takes up a full city block.
The company says the unveiling Thursday will showcase its virtual reality technology, which was built in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, and other locally made products.
