WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Microsoft will begin construction on a new data center in West Des Moines, state and local officials announced Friday, bringing the company's total investment in Iowa to nearly $2 billion, the largest in the state to date.
Gov. Terry Branstad joined with local officials to announce Microsoft's so-called “Project Alluvion,” which is expected to total more than $1.1 billion and create more than 80 full-time jobs. West Des Moines Mayor Steve Gaer said construction will happen over the next four or five years.
