Facebook chooses Seattle site, by Pike Place Market

Facebook just announced that it selected a site for its Seattle engineering office. It’s going to open in mid to late July in a building at the southeast corner of First Avenue and Stewart Street, near Pike Place Market.

The location is midway between the startup warren of Pioneer Square and Amazonville in South Lake Union.

Around 30 or so Facebook developers may eventually work at the office, which was announced May 5.

Facebook’s expecting the office to open with five to 10 employees, according to spokeswoman Kathleen Loughlin.
