What You Need to Know About Facebook's Expanded HQ

Another Monday, another Facebook building. The social media giant opened up its new Frank Gehry-designed expansion building today, which runs a 40-second shuttle under the Bayfront Expressway to move 40 people at a time between the new 430k SF structure and Facebook's existing Menlo Park HQ. The site, named “MPK 20," is its first workplace built from the ground up and can fit about 2,800 workers, reports the Silicon Valley Business Journal. The building includes on-site art from 15 local artists, new restaurants and a 9-acre rooftop park with 400 trees and a half-mile walking trail. There are still more plans in the works for Facebook, which last month bought a 21-building, 56-acre industrial park from Prologis[SVBJ]
