The Mesa City Council has approved a development agreement with Google for a $1 billion data center and accessory office facilities. Google is exploring the acquisition of 187 acres just northwest of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
The Mesa City Council approved a development agreement with the multinational technology and Internet services giant, Google. That agreement outlines a potential project which would include a data center and accessory office facilities. According to the agreement, Google has five years to get the first phase of the data center built. The next step for Google will be to buy the land. That is expected to happen within two months.
“Mesa would be pleased to welcome a global leader in innovation like Google to our community. They would be a great match for the Elliot Road Technology Corridor.” Mayor John Giles said. “There is still much to be done but we are excited to be working with another ‘Big Four’ technology company and the future prospects.”
