While Amazon abruptly cancelled its plans for a second headquarters in New York City, another online giant has announced that it is expanding its nationwide presence.
 
In an online blog post, Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced that his company is investing more than $13 billion this year in data centers and offices, with major expansions in 14 states.
 
“These new investments will give us the capacity to hire tens of thousands of employees, and enable the creation of more than 10,000 new construction jobs in Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia,” Pichai wrote. “With this new investment, Google will now have a home in 24 total states, including data centers in 13 communities. 2019 marks the second year in a row we’ll be growing faster outside of the Bay Area than in it.”
 
Among the locations where Google is expanding is the market where Amazon pulled out: Pichai stated that the Google Hudson Square campus, located in Manhattan across the East River from the proposed Amazon site, will serve as “a major product, engineering and business hub [that] will come to life over the next couple of years.”
