We all know that Microsoft is building a data center in the US state of Iowa. Today, we got more details on this infrastructure investment. Microsoft’s new data center is taking shape on the southeast corner of West Des Moines. More than hundred employees are working around the clock to complete the first two buildings of the project. More than $1 million square feet of new buildings at the cost of $1.1 billion is being built here.
“This is the first type of project like this that Microsoft has ever done. It’s probably one of the largest data centers that anybody has ever done in the country,” said Clyde Evans, West Des Moines Economic Development director.
Once the construction is complete, Microsoft is promising 84 full-time jobs in this area.
