Facebook Moving to New 150,000 sqft Headquarters Next Week

officemapFacebook is beginning its move from 10 buildings in downtown Palo Alto to a new 150,000 square foot building formerly occupied by HP spinoff Agilent next week. The move to 1601 South California Avenue in Stanford Research Park starts May 14, the San Jose Merc reports.

Facebook is leasing its new headquarters, which will bring all nearly 900 employees in the area back under one roof for the first time in a long time. Since co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg brought Facebook to Palo Alto, it’s occupied a variety of buildings downtown.

Employees will be provided a shuttle from Caltrain stops in downtown and on California Ave. There aren’t as many restaurants and coffee shops near the new building, so Facebook’s cafeteria is sure to be busy. However, the new building remains just two blocks off the campus of Stanford University, where Facebook recruits heavily.
