Skype announced their expansion in Silicon Valley today and while such an announcement might be routine and not really worth mentioning, I was certainly struck by the size of the space they are leasing:
Today, I'm pleased to announce that Skype will expand its operations in Silicon Valley, and has just signed a lease with Stanford University for a 90,000 square foot office space in the Stanford Research Park at 3210 Porter Drive in Palo Alto, CA. Silicon Valley will add to Skype's excellent engineering team in Estonia, Prague and Stockholm, and will also become the home of regional marketing, business development, and the Skype for Business team.
90,000 square feet is good bit of space! Obviously they have solid ideas around growing. It's great to see Skype continuing on its path as its own company and I wish them all the best with the move.
