Facebook just announced that they plan to open a second office in Vancouver.
The second office will be located in Cadillac Fairview’s Waterfront Centre. Located on the corner at Burrard Street and Canada Place Way, it will be in the downtown core.
The new location will be a major corporate office in the city; it will have the fourth and fifth floors of a 21-storey sky-rise at 200 Burrard Street.
Vancouver got its original office back in 2013, when the social media powerhouse opened a 20,000-sq-ft office in the building at 1555 West Pender Street in Coal Harbour.
Facebook: Vancouver To Seattle
With its close proximity to Seattle, Vancouver is becoming a leader in the technology industry. The new office promises to create plenty of new jobs in the industry, though exact details are unknown at this point. The original Facebook office had 150 employees at the height of its employment.
Vancouver and Seattle are currently working with Harbour Air to get a direct flight service between the two technology hub cities. With another Facebook office in the city, the two hubs will be working even more closely with one another.
The office is not expected to open until later in 2018.
