The Chinese tech firm is seeking about 200,000 square feet (18,580 square meters) of space initially, according to the person, who asked not to be identified as the information is private. TikTok plans to move staff into the new location before the end of this year, the person said, with the exact timing influenced by the progress of the pandemic.
