Under construction

The new office was designed by Facebook-favorite architect Frank Gehry.

"Finding this space took months of searching and design, and even now it’s still being built around us," said Facebook New York site director Serkan Piantino.

Welcome to the neighborhood

"We are really looking forward to being part of the neighborhood. We plan to host tech meetups and share what we’re working on here in NYC. We’ll even throw a party now and then. We’ll bring talent to the city and partner with the other industries that live here," Facebook's Piantino said.

Clearly, Piantino, the site director, wasn't kidding when he said the office was being built around New York staffers.
