D'autres rumeurs ce matin que la compagnie qui aurait louée 10,000p² d'espace au 1253 McGill College, il y a deux ou trois semaines serait Google.


Le plus intéressant c'est que Google aurait pris des options sur les espaces du 3ième, 4ième, 5ième et 6ième étages (pour une possibilité totale de 100,000p²) ce qui est quand même assez gros!


UNe autre grosse compagnie hi-tech qui s'installe à Mourial!!
