Texas State Senator Jane Nelson today issues the following statement on the groundbreaking of a Facebook data center in the Alliance corridor in Senate District 12.

"I am honored to welcome Facebook to Texas and Senate District 12.  This facility will bring more jobs and open up new economic opportunities for North Texas.  Facebook is a household name, and its decision to locate in Texas reinforces that our state is an excellent place in which to do business," Senator Nelson said.

The plans for three 250,000 square foot buildings on a 110-acre site in the AllianceTexas development north of SH-170 were announced today at a groundbreaking ceremony. The data center will be Facebook's fifth center in the United States and its first in Texas.
