Facebook is continually planning to expand, but the company’s latest addition will cost it a little extra. The social network is planning to build a second building in Menlo Park, Calif. — a 22-acre West Campus that would employ more than 2,000 people.

For the East Campus, the social network agreed to pay the city roughly $14.5 million over the next 14 years.
