You’ve heard of Facebook, right? Well have you heard that there is a project in the works that can possibly bring a Facebook data center to right here in Fort Worth?
The 110-acre, four-building complex is planned for the northeast corner of Alliance Gateway and Park Vista Boulevard and will include a 750,000 square-foot data center.
The Dallas Morning News reports that “documents filed with the state of Texas and the identity of the planning team working on the project indicate it’s for California-based Facebook.”
Facebook already has data centers – which consist of servers and telecommunication equipment – in Oregon, North Carolina and Iowa. And the architect and engineering firm used in Iowa is the same team working on the Fort Worth location.
And while a project like this will not bring hundreds of jobs to the area, it’s still a win for the tech industry in North Texas. According to an executive VP for commercial real estate company, JLL, DFW is the third largest data center market and this will increase competition.
This data center, and others like it, solidifies the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex’s standing as the place to be for tech jobs. And if you’re looking for a new hire or an IT position, contact Maxsys Solutions for all of your professional IT staffing needs.
