Facebook Data Center Coming to Atlanta: Reports

Social network giant mulling 400-acre campus in Southeast’s growing data center hub
Yevgeniy Sverdlik | Jan 24, 2018


A Facebook data center outside of Atlanta is said to be in the works.

The social network giant is eyeing a site in Stanton Springs, a master-planned development east of the city, near a Shire biotech manufacturing plant, according to local news reports that cited anonymous sources.

The news comes after a year that saw more Facebook data center expansion announcements than any prior year, indicating that the company is expecting its demand for computing power to skyrocket over the next several years. Facebook’s user base continues growing (it was at more than 2 billion toward the end of 2017); data-hungry media like video and 360-degree content are playing a bigger and bigger role on its platform; and compute-heavy AI algorithms are doing more and more work on the backend.

The planned Facebook data center campus in the Atlanta metro would be more than 400 acres, Atlanta Business Chronicle reported. Planning papers for the project were filed by Morning Hornet LLC, an entity working on behalf of Facebook, and local development officials were expected to vote on issuing a bond in relation to the project.

The company is expected to invest $1 billion at the start of the project and about $20 billion over the following two decades, the report said, citing an anonymous source.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution confirmed the report, also citing an anonymous source.
