Google has been working with Chandler’s Economic Development Division to sign a lease for a 39,000-square-foot facility in West Chandler, which would serve as Google’s hub for its self-driving car project testing in the Valley. The building is under construction, and renovations should be complete early next year.

Over the last six months, Google’s self-driving cars have learned what it’s like to drive in Chandler’s distinct desert conditions, including extreme heat and dust storms. Google’s experience in Chandler has played a crucial role in helping their engineers refine their self-driving capabilities.

“This emerging technology is helping to diversify our already outstanding reputation as the tech-hub of the southwest,” said Mayor Jay Tibshraeny. “We are thrilled that Google is making a home in Chandler.”

Google’s Chandler-based team includes operations leads and trained test drivers, who will use the new facility to maintain their self-driving vehicles and grow their testing operations in the Valley.
