Google has announced it will invest more than $10 billion in U.S. offices and date centers in 2020, including on its new campus in New York, as well as projects in 10 other states, AFP reported.
That amount is on top of the $22 billion invested by the U.S. tech giant in the past two years.

“These investments will create thousands of jobs - including Google positions, jobs in the construction of date centers and facilities for renewable energy and opportunities for local businesses in surrounding cities and communities,” said a blog post by Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google's parent company - Alfabet, Dariknews reported.

One of the big projects will be the opening of the campus in New York's Hudson Square, where Google has the capacity to double its workforce by 2028. Google's investments are distributed across all U.S. regions and will include expanded offices in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The plans also envisage a Google Cloud campus in Seattle, Washington and around San Francisco and Los Angeles.

"Google” cited a Progressive Policy Institute study showing that parent company Alphabet was the largest investor in the United States last year.

Alphabet reported a 2019 profit of $34 billion at $162 billion in revenue and added about 20,000 jobs to bring its total workforce to 118,899 people at the end of December.Pichai said Google, which has a presence in 26 states, will focus the new investments on 11: Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and California.
