Google Canada to unveil new headquarters for development team in Kitchener, Ont. Add to ...

Google Canada will unveil a new headquarters for its national development team in Kitchener, Ont., on Thursday.

The tech giant 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 Breithuapt 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.

Google’s thumbprint in the Kitchener-Waterloo region, which has become an IT hub, has grown since opening its first office there in 2005.
