Google officially opened the doors of its second Chicago office at a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning with Gov. JB Pritzker and deputy mayor Samir Mayekar.

The new West Loop space at 210 North Carpenter Street will be home to Google's growing cloud computing division. The company already employs 1,200 in Chicago, up from 600 when it moved its first office from River North to Fulton Market four years ago. 

Initially, Google's Chicago team consisted of a handful of salespeople. Now, it includes product, engineering, technical infrastructure, finance and advertising professionals.

The expansion comes with a commitment to provide digital skill training to Chicagoans through a partnership with Chicago's Neighborhood Business Development Centers. Google will also hold an event series to teach community businesses how to leverage its digital marketing and analytics tools, according to a company news release.
