Google Maps current location is weird after moving office

See where my "Work" place is showing. And see where my phone's current location is showing.

Our office has moved this week. I am sitting at my desk in our new office location now. But Google Maps in my phone shows that my current location is still at my old office location.

However, when I restart my phone with WiFi turned off and with only 3G data enabled, then Google Maps shows my current location correctly in the new location.

After I turn WiFi back on inside my office, then (not immediately but after a while) my location is again shown in the old office location.

Is it because when I am connected to our office WiFi SSID (which didn't need to be reconfigured after our move) Google thinks this WiFi mesh is in the old location and, hence, shows me in the old location? Google Location Services issue perhaps? Some kind of wifi-related-location cache hasn't updated or something?

Don't know whatever the reason is. But it surely isn't nice given that it's been a week that we've moved our office to the new place already.
