A few hours north of Seattle sits a gleaming new second-story building that looks like it could be the headquarters for the next big tech startup.
It’s not a tech incubator or incubator-like building, but it is the headquarters of Epic.
The Epic founder and CEO, Brendan Iribe, opened Epic 2nd Friday night.
It is the latest of a series of two-story, $150 million-plus office buildings he has opened in Seattle.
Epic 2nd is one of a handful of new office buildings Iribe has opened since joining the company last year.
The company has a total of 40 employees.
A few hours before Iribe opened Epic, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that Iribe had hired at least 15 people to work in the new office space.
The building has been leased from the city of Seattle for about a year.
Epic also has its own office space on the corner of Pine Street and University Avenue.
Epics new headquarters, a two-level building, is part of an aggressive expansion effort by the Seattle-based company.
It has been leasing the space for about two years, building a $50 million office building and another $75 million office on a site the city owns.
The building is about two blocks east of the Seattle Mariners stadium.
In August, Epic hired more than 300 new workers to work at the new Epic 2-story office building.
Iribe also announced a $100 million investment in the project.
The new building is part part of a $2 billion investment Iribe is making to expand the company into new markets, including a Seattle office that will open in 2018.
The Seattle Times first reported that Epic 2 would be the second of the two-building office buildings Epic has opened.
Epic is expanding into new Seattle office space with a $1 billion investment from Iribe.
I say “expanding” because the company is also in talks to open a second Seattle office building with about 1,500 workers, but has yet to announce which location.
Iribe said the new building will be located at 1555 Pine St. in the former Starbucks location.
The location is owned by the city.
Epic said the building will feature a full-service restaurant, coffee shop and lounge.
The two-floor building has an estimated cost of $150 to $150,000 per floor, depending on how many floors you need to add, Iribe said.
It is owned and operated by Seattle-area firm Westside Development Group, which has done a $70 million project in the area with the building that is currently owned by Amazon.
Epic has also built its own new office in the same building.
The company said the project will create 10 new jobs.
I asked Iribe if he expects to have a second Epic office opening soon.
“It’s a long-term project,” Iribe told the Times.
I have been very fortunate in my career and in my life to have an incredible team around me and to work with a team of people who have been through the most difficult times and made me who I am today.
Epic has been in the Seattle area for nearly 20 years. “
I’ve had a lot of great opportunities, and I’m proud to be a part of this company and the growth that we’re going to have here in the future.”
Epic has been in the Seattle area for nearly 20 years.
I was born and raised in the city and I grew up in the University District.
I have had an incredible career with Epic.
I have a passion for technology and I want to help this company reach the next level.
The next step for Epic will be to build new offices in other cities, Ivi told the Seattle Times.
The new Epic office is just the latest in a string of investments by Iribe and his co-founders, Brian Cannon and Dan O’Leary.
They recently opened the company’s first retail store in downtown Seattle, an online shopping center, and a tech hub.
Cannon and O’Learys are also working to open the world’s first mixed-use office building in Seattle, which they say will be the most affordable office space in the region.
