YoungWoo & Associates and RXR Realty may have had lofty plans to bring a wide variety of office space clients to Pier 57, but here comes Google to muck that all up. Crain's reports that the Internet giant has signed on to occupy 250,000 of SuperPier's 300,000 square feet of office space. Google will still maintain its office at 111 Eighth Avenue and will expand into the massive space on Pier 57's upper floors. Meanwhile, the area not swallowed by Google will still give way to ground-floor retail and a rooftop park.
