Facebook to Move Into New Frank Gehry-Designed New York City Digs

Facebook is upgrading its New York City office space, signing a 10-year lease to relocate from its current 55,000-square-foot home to two floors of space at 770 Broadway totaling just under 100,000 square feet of real estate, the company announced Monday night.
