Confirming a long-rumored deal, Facebook leased 730,000 square feet, comprising all the office space at Vornado Realty Trust’s redevelopment of the Farley Post Office adjacent to Penn Station. The social media giant also has a Manhattan presence at Vornado’s 770 Broadway and at Hudson Yards, where it leased more than 1.5 million square feet last year.
“We are delighted to welcome Facebook to the Farley Building, a property like no other in New York City,” said Vornado CEO Steven Roth. “Facebook’s commitment to Farley expands our longstanding relationship and advances our vision for the Penn District, the new epicenter of Manhattan.”
He added, “Facebook’s commitment is a further testament to New York City’s extraordinary talent and reinforces New York’s position as the nation’s second tech hub.”
Occupying a double-wide block between 31st and 33rd streets, the Farley Building will also include Moynihan Train Hall and 120,000 square feet of retail.
