Facebook is coming to San Francisco soon and its new office looks very luxurious.

The social media giant already has offices in 68 cities around the world and in order to make its presence in San Francisco, a consolidated tech hub, Facebook has signed one of the “largest office lease in three years” inside the spinning needle-topped 181 Fremont luxury tower, the San Francisco Business Times reported.

The Fremont luxury tower is 436,000 square feet and 802-foot tall office where the rent is around $80 per square foot. The building is home to a $42 million penthouse as well.

Facebook’s new office pad in San Francisco is one of the most luxurious offices in town with 70 stories and is right next to the Salesforce Tower. It is oft considered an engineering and architecture masterpiece owing to its aluminum-based exoskeleton twists around the building for added support. The whole tower has a criss-cross pattern around it, which not only gives it a nice aesthetic look but also makes it earthquake-resistant.

Facebook has a massive HQ in San Francisco’s Menlo Park, a 430,000-square-foot complex which has the world’s largest open floor plan. While Facebook probably won’t be shifting its HQ anytime soon but it is expected that they will start moving some of their employees to the new building. The Instagram team will be the first to move to the new office later this year.
