Google Workers Move Into Spruce Goose Hangar

Employees from Google’s YouTube division have moved into new offices inside a building with a rich legacy—a former airplane hanger in Playa Vista, Calif., that once housed the Spruce Goose, the giant wooden airplane built by aviator Howard Hughes, the Los Angeles Times reports. The facility, which Google has been developing for some time, includes office space and production facilities for the company’s YouTube entertainment division. Google already had space for video creators in Playa Vista and employs about 1,000 people in the Los Angeles area across a few different offices. The scale of the facility, part of a 450,000 square foot complex, is a sign Google remains committed to developing original content for its YouTube subscription business, even in the face of stiff competition from Netflix, Facebook and Amazon.
