In 2007, a Pittsburgh-based real-estate developer purchased a vacant Nabisco factory in the city's predominantly residential East End. The repurposed 495,000-square-foot building, dating to 1918, reopened in 2010 following a $110 million renovation by Pittsburgh-based Astorino. The complex now includes a hotel, retail space, and offices and serves as Google's new Pittsburgh headquarters. The tech giant occupies a two-story penthouse designed by another local firm, Strada. The office features an open floor plan and whimsical elements, including a giant suspended hammock. Plans are in the works for Bakery Square 2.0, a $120 million office, retail, and residential complex across the street.
