Meta, formerly known as the Facebook company, is building its data center in Kansas City, Missouri with an investment of more than $800 million and supporting up to 100 jobs.
“Meta is excited to call Kansas City our new home. It stands out with so much to offer – good access to infrastructure and fiber, a strong pool of talent for both construction and operations, and more than anything, great community partners,” said Darcy Nothnagle, Director of Community and Economic Development at Meta.
The nearly 1 million-square-foot data center will be located in the Golden Plains Technology Park. It will be supported by 100 percent renewable energy and will be one of the most sustainable data centers in the world.
Meta plans to be operational in Kansas City in 2024.
