The City’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development estimates that the nearly 450,000 square feet of office space can accommodate approximately 2,500 jobs in San Francisco, said San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee in making the announcement today. “As a national leader in job creation, San Francisco is the perfect home for a company that is connecting people to jobs, and I am pleased that LinkedIn is significantly expanding their presence here,” said Mayor Lee. “LinkedIn’s decision to grow in the Innovation Capital of the World demonstrates, once again, investor confidence in our City.”
