Meta Data Center coming to KC
Thursday it was announced that Kansas City has been selected to be home to Meta’s new $800 million hyperscale data center. Meta, commonly known as Facebook, plans to build the center in Gold Plains Technology Park with a scheduled open date of 2024. Construction of the nearly 1 million square foot center will bring 1,300 plus jobs to the area and an additional 100 operational jobs will be available upon completion. The announcement came during a Thursday gathering of Missouri economic development leaders at Union Station. Missouri Governor Mike Parson teased “We are here today to make a bigger announcement than Tyreek Hill’s trade”. All jokes aside, I think we can all agree that this is a huge win for Kansas City!
