Airbnb is growing yet again in Seattle.

  • The company inked a lease for 58,300 square feet in the 8th + Olive building in downtown Seattle where it opened an office about 18 months ago, according to a report from real estate brokerage Colliers International.
  • Airbnb first landed in Seattle in 2016 and put down permanent roots with the 8th + Olive office two years later, grabbing two floors totaling 42,000 square feet. The expansion in Seattle gives Airbnb greater ability to poach people from a variety of companies, including Expedia, a top competitor that has been positioning subsidiary HomeAway as more of a direct rival to Airbnb.
  • Airbnb, a potential IPO candidate in 2020, also inked a lease in the San Francisco area this week, totaling 300,000 square feet across two buildings.
