Google has confirmed leasing 140,000 square feet of office space at 215 Fremont St., the longtime home of Charles Schwab, and plans to occupy the space later this year, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.


The new Transbay district office could hold nearly 1,000 workers, though Google has yet to disclose its plans for the building.


The expansion is the fourth for the company in less than a year. Other recent deals include


  • A lease of about 300,000 square feet in One Market

  • 190,000 square feet in One Maritime Plaza at 300 Clay St.

  • A 57,299-square-foot expansion at 2 Harrison St. 


The company’s San Francisco office space holdings have grown by more than 60 percent in the past year, the Chronicle reported, and Google is the city’s third-largest tech tenant behind Salesforce and Uber.


As companies fight for space, there are fewer buildings to go around. According to a San Francisco Business Times story from last month, Google, Amazon and Facebook all considered Park Tower — before Facebook ultimately signed a deal for the entire highrise. The next huge site to hit the market will be Oceanwide Center at First and Mission streets — 1.1 million square feet of office space — but that won’t come online until about 2023.
