Social network mogul Mark Zuckerberg is continuing Facebook’s push into Silicon Alley with a new design office, the New York Post reported. The office will likely be near its current office at 335 Madison Avenue, between 43rd and 44th streets, the company said.

This is the first time Facebook will operate a design unit outside Silicon Valley and Facebook said that it plans to add local designers to its 150-person New York staff — although there is no word on how many hires the social media company will make.

“This team will work in advertising and closely collaborate with the Facebook sales team and many of their major clients to learn how to better meet their needs,” Facebook said in an e-mailed statement to the Post. “They’ll help businesses find better ways to communicate with their fans and build tools that help them understand how to optimize their spend on the Facebook advertising platform.”

As The Real Deal previously reported, Facebook’s flop on the stock exchange earlier this year helped to boost the perception that city real estate is safer way to invest. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
