Facebook Expands Los Lunas, New Mexico Data Center

11/20/2017
Facebook announced its latest expansion of its data center in Los Lunas, New Mexico. The expansion brings the total investment in the project to over $1 billion.

The company will add four more buildings to the Los Lunas campus, in addition to the two already under construction. Construction on the Los Lunas Campus, 24 miles south of Albuquerque, is expected to keep construction crews busy until, at least, 2023, as well as supporting more full-time jobs.

Facebook will add nearly 1.8 million square feet to the Los Lunas Data Center, for a total of nearly 2.8 million square feet and six buildings, for the entire campus.

“We’re thrilled to be expanding our presence in the State of New Mexico and the Village of Los Lunas, and we’re grateful to Governor Martinez for her ongoing support,” said Erin Egan, Facebook’s Vice President, U.S. Public Policy. “We continue to find a strong pool of talent to build our data center, and with this expansion, construction crews will be working on the site well into 2023.”

According to the Governor’s Office, in selecting New Mexico for this data center project, Facebook liked the state’s competitive business climate, strong workforce, commitment to infrastructure investment, and opportunities for renewable energy development.

“This expansion is good news for New Mexico and I’m proud to continue building on our strong partnership with Facebook as they create jobs and grow their investment in our state,” said Governor Martinez. “This shows even more encouraging momentum, and we’ll continue using our powerful tools and reforms to compete for more jobs and investment.”
