Zynga, the biggest maker of games on Facebook, is seeking as much as $1 billion in the biggest initial public offering by a U.S. Internet company since Google's premiere.  Zynga is the undisputed leader in online social games. The company has 232 million active users playing titles like CityVille, FarmVille, Empires & Allies, and Mafia Wars.

The company is offering 100 million shares for $8.50 to $10 apiece, according to a regulatory filing Friday, December 2, 2011. The high end of the range would value San Francisco's Zynga at $7 billion.
The sale is scheduled for Dec. 15, according to Bloomberg data.
Zynga's Corporate HQ is located at 365 Vermont Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, in the old Sega building.  If you have never driven by this building, you should.  Their office space span six floors and includes a food court, snack bars on every floor, a laptop help center and whiteboard artwork in almost every corner. It’s impossible not to run into a Mafia Wars 2 or AdventureWorld character every five feet.
Zynga has more than 1,500 employees and expects to double that number in the next year. They have been on a hiring streak already with 224 new employees in California so far this year.  
A lot of these new hires are competing for housing in the San Francisco area along with new employees from Google, Facebook and Twitter.   It has been a highly competitive residential rental market so far; vacancy rates are down to an all time low and rents having increased at least 10% compared to 2 years ago.

  1. A good article useful for a young programmer like me, since I like to create games and it seems to me that something new and unique will come to the market in a short time. I have a development team and one project that we plan to complete at the end of the year. Now we have found a sponsor who helped us move to a new house where we live and realize our project. With the move we were helped by these guys, maybe it's useful to someone. They did their work in the best way and all our things and equipment were brought without damage, this can not but rejoice, given the long way.
