Google whose parent company is named as Alphabet, is about to buy New York City's historic Chelsea Market building as reported by Real Deal on Tuesday. It's located right across the street from the company's NYC headquarters.

The tech giant - which is already the largest tenant in the former Nabisco factory at 75 Ninth Ave. - is buying the 1.2-million-square-foot office-and-retail property from Jamestown, an Atlanta-based real-estate investment firm, insiders told The Post.

Google is reportedly expanding its bandwith in Chelsea.
