Death of the urban office, Google is building a campus.  Granted it's not urban.  I think SF and NYC are very different and have some similarities.  I think SF is smaller and not conducive to public transportation.  NYC has great subway network that should function well once we have a vaccine.  These are nuances that I wasn't as cognizant of until speaking to a few SF techies recently.

Google Abandons Plan to Rent Dublin Office for 2,000 Workers

https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/google-abandons-plan-to-rent-dublin-office-for-2-000-workers-1.1490492

Alphabet Incís Google unit walked away from a plan to rent space in Dublin for as many 2,000 workers, shelving one of the cityís biggest real-estate deals in recent years.

Google had been in talks to rent about 202,000 sq ft (18,766 square meters) of space at the Sorting Office, close to the Irish capitalís south quays, adding to its array of sites in the city.

That WSJ op ed from the Related Cos exec was very Randy Duke, "Turn those machines back on!"  Scariest thing I've seen. haha.

Some activist should take a run at SLG or VNO with a nice spread deck on converting to industrial (ghost kitchens and fulfillment), data storage, and trailer parks in the sky.
