Facebook Intends To Build Data Center In Omaha Suburb
PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) – Facebook has announced plans to build a data center near the Omaha suburb of Papillion .
The company said Tuesday at a news conference the center will located on 146 acres at a Nebraska Highway 50 intersection 2 miles north of Springfield. It will include four 610,000-square foot buildings – two on each side of the highway, connected by a tunnel.
It’s unclear how many people will work there, but so far officials say fewer than 150 workers will be on duty during the future center’s biggest shift. A Facebook representative didn’t immediately return a message.
The county already has data centers for Yahoo, Fidelity Investments, Travelers Insurance and Cabela’s. Facebook also built a $300 million data center in Altoona, Iowa, in 2015.
