Facebook is reportedly looking at a new office over the road from Google's London HQ

Google London King's CrossHeatherwick Studio and Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)A planned Google building in King’s Cross.

Facebook is looking at moving into a new office near Google’s new London headquarters, according to sources cited by Bloomberg.

The social media giant is reportedly looking to lease 400,000 square feet of office space at King’s Cross, which is also home to a number of Google buildings.

The amount of office space that Facebook takes is subject to change and there is no guarantee that it will take any at all, Bloomberg’s sources reportedly said.

Despite Brexit, US tech giants are taking an increasing amount of office space in London, with several huge UK and European headquarters announced for the city in the last few years.

Google is occupying several buildings in King’s Cross, Apple is planning to move its UK headquarters to Battersea Power Station, and Amazon has just opened an 15-storey building space in Shoreditch. Elsewhere Snapchat parent company Snap has set up an office in Soho and Facebook has signed an agreement to lease an office close to Oxford Street.

Facebook did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
