Facebook Reportedly Doubling Its European Headquarters

Irish realtors’ eyes may be smiling on Facebook, as the social network is reportedly looking to more than double the size of its European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland.

Bloomberg reported that Facebook may try to lease as much as 120,000 square feet of space in Dublin over the next five years.

The company’s current headquarters there, established in 2008, occupy about 54,000 square feet.

On the other side of the pond, Facebook completed its move into its new headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif., last month.

Sources told that Bloomberg proposals for potential new spaces for Facebook were due January 13; possibilities include the former Bank of Ireland headquarters building and two office blocks in south docklands located near the social network’s current facility.

Facebook’s European headquarters in Dublin handle all of the social network’s users outside of the United States and Canada.
