Apple may be building new headquarters that look like a spaceship, but Google is getting a goddamn airport!

According to Mineta San Jose International Airport, Signature Aviation and Blue City Holdings are going to build a 29-acre private owned $82 million facility that will house Google's airplane fleet, among other private jets, I would suppose. It will include an executive terminal, aircraft servicing facilities, and hangars and ramp space for private jets as large as the Boeing 737 and 767.

It looks nice, although is not as fancy as San Jose's new public terminal.[San Jose Mercury News]

They're not getting their own airport (they already have that at Moffett for all intensive purposes, guess its not working out). Signature Flight Support is an aviation ground services provider located on multiple public airports worldwide. What this says to me is that Signature is building a new FBO at the San Jose International with the capabilities and perhaps a private terminal to handle Google's corporate fleet.
