What’s even more astonishing: It’s been adding new space even though it has not yet filled buildings it already has, giving the company the flexibility to expand its already large Bay Area workforce by nearly 30,000 more workers.

“I’ve never seen anything like this sort of expansion from any one company,” said Phil Mahoney, a broker with commercial realty firm Cornish & Carey.
