Technology giant Google is coming to Mesa, lured by a tax incentive agreement to build a massive data center in the emerging Elliot Road Technology Corridor.
In a major coup for the city, Google will join fellow tech heavyweight Apple, which already operates a large data center in the same area of southeast Mesa.
The Mesa City Council is primed to approve the Google development agreement at its meeting on Monday night.
“In terms of a financial deal, this is home run. This is a great day,’’ Mayor John Giles said, after the council discussed the deal Thursday morning during an hour-long executive session.
