Google starts construction on $600M data center in unlikely burgeoning tech hub of New Albany, Ohio

Holder Construction broke ground Nov. 1 on a Google data center in New Albany, Ohio, making it the third major tech company to establish a facility in the Columbus, Ohio suburb. The new location will cost $600 million and cover 440 acres, with completion expected by early 2021. Google’s arrival follows Facebook adding 415 acres last month for the social media giant’s growing data farm in the town. Facebook first invested in a New Albany data center in 2017, three years after Amazon spent $1.1 billion on facilities in central Ohio.
