Facebook expanding its Canadian operations to Kitchener/Waterloo

by Rob Lewis

The world’s largest social networking company appears to be expanding its Canadian operations in a big way. Facebook, which has its Canadian headquarters in Toronto, is reportedly planning a major presence in the nearby Kitchener/Waterloo region.

The social networking giant is looking at space in a former auto-parts factory on King Street West, according to a published report in The Daily Commercial News and Construction Record. Facebook is eyeing space in The Breithaupt Block, a collection of old industrial buildings at King and Breithaupt streets, adjacent to the railway tracks in downtown Kitchener.

Facebook would be a huge addition to the growing cluster of high-tech companies in downtown Kitchener. The Breithaupt Block is a short distance from the Google office in the former Lang Tannery building at Victoria and Charles streets, which is home to about 28 technology firms.
