Thursday May 9, 2024

ֲý continues to expand its presence in the mission-critical sector with a significant new project. Meta awarded ֲý the contract for an $800+ million data center in Montgomery, Alabama. This project represents a substantial investment in the region’s tech infrastructure, with the facility set to join Meta’s existing Alabama data center campus in Huntsville.

The Montgomery data center, spanning 715,000 SF and designed to be AI-optimized, will become Meta’s 24th data hub and 20th in the United States. The construction of the Montgomery data center is expected to generate over 1,000 jobs at its peak, providing a significant economic boost to the region. Scheduled for completion by the end of 2026, the facility is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification and will be supported by 100% renewable energy, reflecting Meta’s commitment to sustainability.

Meta’s dedication to fostering positive impacts within its data center communities resonates strongly with one of ֲý’ Core Values: Community. This is ֲý’ second campus with Meta, reaffirming ֲý’ commitment to supporting Meta’s data center endeavors across the United States.

The recent acquisition of the Montgomery Data Center project stands as a significant milestone for ֲý as it expands its portfolio within the mission-critical market sector. ֲý is thrilled to support Meta’s data center efforts and contribute to the growth and prosperity of Montgomery and beyond.
