Reporting from San Francisco -- Google Inc. is opening an office for its entertainment division in Beverly Hills.
The Internet search giant will occupy more than 13,000 square feet in a city-owned building. The City Council approved the 11-year lease agreement, valued at $6.3 million, at a meeting Tuesday.
"The location in our emerging entertainment business district is a perfect fit both for Google and for the city," Beverly Hills Mayor Barry Brucker said in a statement.
Google will move into its new digs by year's end. The office will house employees from YouTube and Google, said a person familiar with the situation who did not want to be named because he was not authorized to comment.
