Facebook’s new Fort Worth Data Center is a new, 200-acre data campus being delivered in multiple phases. The site includes three data centers with rooftop air handling equipment, outdoor standby diesel generators and supporting electrical substation. An administrative building connects two of the data centers; the third data center is a standalone building.
When completed, the Fort Worth site will be Facebook’s largest data center to date, four buildings connected to form two “H” shapes, plus one standalone center, for a total of 20 data halls on nearly 150 acres at Texas 170 and Park Vista Boulevard. Facebook has had 750 construction workers on-site daily while the first building was being built.
Facebook started building in 2015 and has announced several expansions.
