Google searching here?

From the Business Review:
Google Inc. is quietly searching for about 250,000 square feet of office space in Ann Arbor for two separate projects that could bring more than 1,000 jobs into Washtenaw County if the $1 billion search engine giant signs leases for both.

One search reportedly focuses on up to 200,000 square feet for a "Googleplex," described as a technology/call center that could land either in Ann Arbor or a handful of other cities.

The second seeks about 40,000 square feet for work related to the company's work at the University of Michigan as Google digitizes the entire library collection. Google [NASDAQ: GOOG] representatives would not comment, saying that company policy prohibits public discussion of operations.
