Google has already found ‘the building’ in Madrid. Some time ago, the technological giant from the Sillicon Valley announced willingness to establish one of its Campuses supporting start-ups of young entrepreneurs in Madrid.
The chosen property is situated on the Mazarredo street, half way from the mythic La Riviera concert hall and the viaduct that hangs over the Segovia street, nearby the Las Vistillas park in the Madrid of the Habsburgs old town area.
Google justified the property choice on its blog: ‘it itself has got a track of innovation as in 1892 engineer Isaac Peral – the inventor of the submarine – founded in there the first electrical energy storage batteries plant in Spain’.
The U.S. firm is carrying out a profound renovation of the building in order to include ‘a Campus Café, space for events’ and collective services for co-working purposes.
