Dota 2 dev and Steam owner will occupy nine floors of Lincoln Square tower, to a total of 225,000 square feet

Valve to double office space in upcoming studio move

Hallowed PC games firm Valve is set to almost double its workspace in early 2017 as it relocates its operations to a new Seattle-based office.

The Dota 2, Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike developer (it also created a long-forgotten PC game, Half… something?) has been in its current 125,000-square-foot Bellevue, Washington building since 2010.

Its new crib will consist of nine floors of the new Lincoln Square tower, bumping its available area to approximately 225,000 square feet – roughly a third of the tower’s 710,000 square feet of space.

The developer, distributor and – with the recent launch of the Vive VR headset, Steam Machines and Steam Controller – hardware firm will be in good company: former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer currently rents the top floor of the tower.

Valve will make the move in May 2017.
