Google to close Arizona office

Google says it will shut down its Arizona office after finding that projects were too fragmented, according to blog post.

Google will be shuttering its Arizona office on November 21, the company announced on Friday.

"We've found that despite everyone's best efforts, the projects our engineers have been working on in Arizona have been, and remain, highly fragmented," Alan Eustace, senior vice president of engineering and research, wrote in a post on the Official Google Blog. "So after a lot of soul searching we have decided to incorporate work on these projects into teams elsewhere at Google."

The office opened in 2006 on the campus of Arizona State University in Tempe, just south of Phoenix.

The closure is the latest of several: the company announced plans in July to close offices in Denver and Dallas.
