Status update: Facebook is expanding its office in downtown Denver.
The social media giant signed a lease last month for the sixth floor of 1900 16th St., the company confirmed.
Facebook already operates on the building’s seventh floor, having opened there in November 2018.
“We are committed to Denver as evidenced by our future expansion at 1900 16th St.,” Facebook spokesman Tracy Clayton said in a statement. “Given the competitive real estate market in the region we are always on the lookout for opportunities to accommodate our growth.”
The second floor gives Facebook an additional 23,000 square feet, bringing it to about 47,000 square feet in the building.
The company said about 100 employees generally work in the company’s current office — not factoring in the coronavirus — and the second floor will allow it to accommodate another 90 to 100.
The 17-story 1900 16th St. tower is topped with signage for First Western Trust Bank. Other tenants include law firm Littler Mendelson, Analysis Group and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
