Why Does Google's Plan to Build A New Headquarter Campus Evinces Fear For The Locals?

The buzz in the vine is that following the footsteps (sort of!) of technology giants Apple and Facebook, Google also is readying its plan to build a humongous new headquarter campus.

The new campus is understood be located in close vicinity to the existing headquarters of Google in Mountain View, California. The only big and major difference that the new campus will have over the new one is the gigantic size of the campus supposedly flagged by a series of canopy-like buildings and structures.

Google's new campus in Mountain View, California

Unconfirmed hear-say tells BricksnMortar Edesk that the campus's concept and architecture is being put in black and white by a London based design firm, Heatherwick Studio along with the celebrated Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels, whos earlier works like the Fiery Caldron for the 2012 Olympic Games have drawn significant interest world over.

The problem that is brewing up with the local residents of the erstwhile somewhat sleepy town of Mountain View is that they feel Google's ever expanding campuses are already trampling their small city like anything. Addition to these existing campuses would mean induction of more and more employees and services, which in turn would further congest their small city.

The traffic condition in the area is already quite bad making the locals feel uncomfortable. Further addition to the campus means more people, more traffic and more inconvenience to the locals.

But, on the other hand, won't this part of California get more opportunities to grow? What do you think is the better solution that is win-win for both-- the locals as well as the tech giant? Share your views and opinions with us.
