Plans reveal that Facebook will be building a new data center in Ohio.
The Columbus Dispatch reported news that Facebook will be building a new data center to host its growing social media platform.
“The Facebook data center will be built in western Licking County on a 345-acre site east of Beech Road and south of Route 161, according to a fact sheet prepared by the city of New Albany. The center will be 900,000 square feet, or more than 15 football fields.
Central Ohio was a finalist two years ago for a Facebook data center that ended up being built in Fort Worth, Texas.
The New Albany project is to create 50 permanent jobs with an annual salary of $80,000, plus 1,000 construction jobs. The data center is expected to open in 2022.”
