Google Buying 30 Acres In Oregon … Hmm
According to the Business Journal, Google is planning to pay $1.87 million for 30 acres of industrial land within the Port of The Dalles’ Chenoweth Creek Industrial Subdivision.
This move would bring up to 100 new jobs. Google could also purchase three other area sites.
Both parties have signed off on a sales agreement. But the Chronicle reported it’s contingent on conditions in the agreement being met — such as tax incentives and power supply.
Google representatives contacted by The Business Journal Thursday morning confirmed that the deal was in the works, but declined to provide more details about why The Dalles was chosen or what type of work would be done at the site.
