West Campus, designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, was granted final approval by the city of Menlo Park in March. It features a long, 433,555-square-foot building with a surface-level parking lot, reaching 73 feet high at some points but mostly about 45 feet high, boasting an open layout, ample breakaway spaces, and trees everywhere, including on a rooftop garden covering the entire building.
The former Tyco Electronics buildings on the site, located at 312 and 313 Constitution Drive, were demolished Aug. 23, according to The Almanac.
The social network expects about 2,800 employees to occupy West Campus.
