The tech company is reportedly in talks to lease an additional 500,000 square feet at Related Companies’ megadevelopment, according to Bloomberg. That brings the company’s potential footprint at Hudson Yards to 1.5 million square feet.

The lion’s share of Facebook’s office are to be located in 50 Hudson Yards, as previously reported. However, the tower is still under construction, so sources told Bloomberg that the company is now looking at space to occupy immediately in 30 Hudson Yards and 55 Hudson Yards.

Facebook has been searching for office space around the city for months. In December, the company was reportedly eyeing SL Green Realty’s One Madison Avenue and, in June, reports surfaced that Vornado Realty Trust had pitched its 15 Penn Plaza office tower to the tech giant.
