The Village of Los Lunas is proud to announce that the Global Company Facebook will build a data center in the Village of Lunas.
This is great economic development news for the Village of Los Lunas and the state of New Mexico. After competing aggressively with Utah, Los Lunas won out due to the pro economic development leadership of our elected officials and the hard work and professionalism of the Village staff.
Once the Facebook Data Center is completed, we are looking at 30 full-time jobs and a $250 million investment per phase. Other big news is that this project will stimulate 200-500 construction jobs on site, daily.
This project is an economic development game changer for the state of New Mexico, providing “multiplier spending effects” that benefits workers and business owners in other sections of the local and regional economies. Also, the data center construction will generate hundreds of millions of dollars in economic impact beyond the amount directly spent by the company, and typically support thousands of jobs over multiple years.
And finally, there is often a ”follow the leader” effect – once one large data center project locates in an area, others will follow shortly afterwards.
