‘housing is also critically important to these efforts. we hope to contribute significantly to the housing supply by building 1,500 units of housing on the campus, 15% of which will be offered at below market rates.’ comments john tenanes, facebook’s vice president of global facilities and real estate. ‘these efforts complement our ongoing work to address the issue, including the catalyst housing fund for affordable housing we established in partnership with community groups to fund affordable housing for our local area.’
