The San Jose City Council has agreed to enter into exclusive negotiations with Google for the sale of city property in the heart of the city to be used for the technology company's proposed transit village and mega tech campus.
The Mercury News reported the council voted 10-2 Tuesday to enter into the negotiations with Google for 16 city-owned parcels in downtown San Jose.
If the plan is approved, Google would build between 6 million and 8 million square feet of offices and other spaces in the area around Diridon Station, the central passenger rail depot for San Jose.

City officials say the campus would generate millions of dollars in tax revenue and add thousands of tech jobs.
