Facebook looking at North Fort Worth for huge data center

A project worth nearly $1 billion that’s in the works for North Fort Worth hopes to lure social media giant Facebook to Texas.

Fort Worth has already approved financial incentives for the 110-acre data center project planned near Interstate 35W in the AllianceTexas development.

Plans filed with the city call for a four-building complex at the northeast corner of Alliance Gateway and Park Vista Boulevard, east of Alliance Airport.

Developers of the project and Fort Worth have closely guarded who will use the 750,000-square-foot data center, which would be one of North Texas’ largest such projects.
