To make room for all of the recent hires, Facebook is moving its offices to Menlo Park. They are leasing (with an option to purchase after 5 years) the former Sun campus at the corner of Williow Road and Bayfront Expressway.
This office campus is comprised of 57 acres with 11 buildings and 1 million square feet of space. This complex should accomodate about 3,600 Facebook employees.
Facebook clearly has non-stop expansion in mind since they have purchased to adjacent parcels located at 312 and 314 Constitution Drive.
Moving day is coming soon. Who’s in?
As I write about this and realize that Sun has been swallowed up by Oracle, I am reminded about how early Sun was to the thin client, networked PC, game. ”The network is the computer”!
