Updated on

Facebook Inc. signed a lease for most of a new Seattle office building in a deal that would increase the amount of real estate it rents worldwide by about 9 percent, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

The social-networking company agreed to occupy almost 275,000 square feet (25,500 square meters) at the recently completed Dexter Station in the South Lake Union neighborhood north of downtown, said the person, who asked not to be named because the lease details aren’t public. The 10-story building has a total of 345,992 square feet. Facebook’s space could accommodate about 2,000 employees.
