Facebook in Talks to Lease More Space in Dublin

Facebook is in talks to lease more office space in Dublin and is weighing renting even more property in the Irish capital, Bloomberg reported, quoting two people with knowledge of the matter.

They said the company plans to lease about 75,000 square feet (7,000 square meters) of space near East Point Business Park, where Google (GOOGL, GOOG) and Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO) have offices. That’s enough space for about 600 workers, based on modern office standards. The firm agreed to rent about 110,000 square feet of office space in the East Wall district earlier this year. Facebook has its European headquarters in Dublin.
