LinkedIn has big expansion plans

An 'ultra-green' expansion of MV campus headed for council decision

by Daniel DeBolt

While City Council members have balked at allowing development in the area until next year, LinkedIn apparently wants to get its foot in the door for a major expansion of its headquarters in North Bayshore, as the company may be competing with Google and others for a limited 3.4 million square feet in new office space that would be allowed there.

Yes, we need 8-story buildings over there because the commute traffic feeds it is ALREADY INSANE.

We need to freeze ALL new office space and development for at least a couple years, and set a fixed ratio of new office to new home construction.

Please LinkedIn and Google - no more building or expansion in Mountain View.
