In August 2017, Facebook announced plans to build its first data center in the state in New Albany. The 970,000-square-foot facility is being constructed on 345 acres in the business park on the east side of Beech Road and south of the state Route 161 interchange.
The first two buildings – each 450,000 square feet – are connected by 75,000 square feet of administrative offices in an "H" shape. A third is under construction. When the fourth and fifth are complete, the buildings will total 2.5 million square feet.
