Facebook is going ahead with plans to expand its Menlo park headquarters according to TG Daily.
Housing 2,800 engineers, the building will include what's claimed to be the largest open-plan office in the world - 420,000 square feet, or a mind-blowing ten acres. It will be linked to the existing offices by an underground tunnel.
"At every step of planning the new building, Frank has taken into account our engineering culture. It will be a large, one room building that somewhat resembles a warehouse," says the company's environmental design manager Everett Katigbak.
Its a lot of fun watching the Facebook Fans kiss Marks ass over this expansion. Mark is a youngster and didnt live through the dot com bubble many of us remember well. While I dont think Facebook is going anywhere but I would be more concerned as a shareholder.
2800 engineers? 420,000 square feet or ten acres? A park? Tunnels? Where can I sign up before its too late?
