Facebook Expanding In Austin

Facebook is in the midst of a big expansion of its presence in Austin, according to BuildZoom, which says this week that it has uncovered a slew of building permits which indicate the Silicon Valley giant is spending around $11.2 million to expand its offices at 300 W 6th Street. BuildZoom--which tracks building permits for contractors--said that Facebook also looks to be planning to build a cafeteria at the location. Facebook first opened up its offices in Austin in 2010.
