(Omaha, NE) -- Google announces that it will build a new data center in northwest Omaha.
On Thursday, Google announced that it plans to invest over $750 million in Nebraska this year, including building a new data center near State Street and Blair High Road. The new site will be Google's third facility in the area. The company already has centers in Council Bluffs and Papillion. “Thank you to Google for choosing to grow in Nebraska with a $750 million investment. Added to the $600 million investment in 2019, Google has put well over a billion dollars into its operations in the Cornhusker State,” said Governor Pete Ricketts.
Google says it also intends to give $100,000 to the new Central Public Library project. “Thank you, Google, for recognizing the potential in Omaha and our state with your $750 million investment in Nebraska,” said Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert. “It will join other significant economic investments to enhance our region with opportunities and resources. We are grateful for your investments not just in infrastructure but also in nonprofit projects, technology and education.”
