Amazon’s ambitious growth plans aren’t limited to its hometown of Seattle, according to a new report out of Canada.
The company has committed to lease 91,000 square feet of space in a new development in downtown Vancouver, B.C., with the ability to expand to as much as 156,000 square feet, according to the report today by the TechVibes news site. That translates into room for more than 1,000 workers, if the company ends up taking all of the space, the site reports.
Amazon opened an initial engineering center in Vancouver earlier this year, and is currently hiring for a variety of engineering positions in the city.
We’ve contacted Amazon seeking more information about its plans in Vancouver, and we’ll update this post depending on what we hear back.
Meanwhile, the company is proceeding with its new development on the northern edge of downtown Seattle — including a distinctive set of biospheres — with a key design review meeting for that project taking place this evening at City Hall in Seattle.
