Google is considering the possibility of opening up a new office space in a Los Angeles airplane hangar owned by Howard Hughes in the 1940s, according to the Wall Street Journal. The building was once used for airplane construction, but was later used as a filming location for movies such as Michael Bay’s recent Transformers and Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day.
Aside from film production crews, the 300,000 square-foot building, which is located north of LAX, has been mostly vacant since the 80s. The real estate development firm that currently owns the property has been searching for a company to use it for offices for about four years now, and the unconventional design seems to fit right in with Google’s tastes.
