The social giant announced that it has signed a 10-year lease agreement in order to move its New York office into a 100,000-square-foot space spread over two floors. The new office is located at 770 Broadway in Manhattan. Facebook’s new office will be designed by architect Frank Gehry and company’s engineering, design, marketing, sales, and communications teams will move to the new office by early 2014.
Here is how Facebook describes its new office:
Our new office is around 100,000 square feet and takes up two floors of an existing building. It’s almost double the size of our current space and gives us room to grow even further. That means big, open spaces for people to work and collaborate, and lots of room for conference rooms and cozy spaces where people can meet or grab a white board to talk through ideas on a whim. We’ll have plenty of video conferencing equipment to make meeting with our colleagues in other offices really quick and easy. We’ll have room to build out a full service kitchen and serve great food throughout the day. And, of course, we’ll still have all the other Facebook benefits like free laundry, gym memberships and lots of paid vacation.
