Photos: See what Facebook’s new Astor Place HQ will look like
The tech giant moved into fancy new digs in lower Manhattan this week—take a look at the unfinished space
Thu Feb 27 2014
This week, Facebook moved into bigger, swankier, Frank Gehry–designed digs near Astor Place. The new bi-level space, at 770 Broadway, clocks in at nearly 100,000 square feet, almost double 55K square feet of its former spot at 335 Madison Avenue. Though all of the company's NYC employees started working in the new building on Monday, the office is still under construction and won't officially open its doors until spring. The move brings the social-media giant close to a bunch of other tech powerhouses; its neighbors now include AOL, Adweek, Billboard and IBM. Plus, the company is actively hiring engineers...even Bill de Blasio is excited about it.
Scroll down to take a look at scale models for the space; it features gorgeous views, ornate pillars from the original design and—since it's Facebook—plenty of perks, like an in-house cafeteria and barista.
