Work on Google’s new campus at Pearl and 30th streets is moving forward, with the company exercising an option to purchase land associated with Phase II of the project at the intersection.

Google spokesman Curtis Hubbard said the move on the land was in keeping with development plans for the project and that it did not represent an acceleration of development.

The $150 million project includes a four-acre campus that will provide 330,000 square feet of office space in three four-story buildings with an underground parking lot.

The project broke ground last summer. The first phase, designed to accommodate up to 1,000 workers, is scheduled to be done in 2017.

Phase II, for which no official time line has been set, is designed to accommodate another 500 employees. News of activity on the phase II land option was first reported by BizWest.

Google now has about 340 employees in Boulder.
