Facebook Buys Enormous New Office

Facebook announced it will move to new offices nearly seven times the size of its current headquarters. Someone is planning on conquering the world, clearly.

Facebook said it will move to the million square-foot former Sun Microsystems campus in Menlo Park, California from its current 152,000-square-foot headquarters in Palo Alto. Even if Facebook consolidates the 265,000-square-foot annex it added a year ago, it's got room to more than double its square footage. Factor in options on two additional pieces of land, and Facebook says there's room to triple current staff to 6,100.

Of course, the new acquisition will eventually mean CEO Mark Zuckerberg no longer lives down the street from HQ. Good thing he's a renter.
