Meta Plans Rosemount, Minnesota, Data Center

Meta plans to establish a data center facility in Rosemount, Minnesota. The $800 million project is expected to create 100 jobs.

“We are extremely happy to make Minnesota and Rosemount our new home. We are committed to playing a positive role here and investing in the community's long-term vitality,” said Brad Davis, director of data center community and economic development at Meta. “Rosemount stood out as an outstanding location for our newest data center thanks to its great access to infrastructure, deep pool of talent, and amazing community partners. Our thanks go to all of our partners that have helped get us here.”

The new facility will be located on a 280-acre parcel of land in UMore Park. Operations are scheduled for 2026.

“Meta’s decision to invest in Rosemount illustrates the story we’re sharing with businesses everywhere : we have world-class infrastructure, a tech-savvy workforce and an innovative and creative spirit that makes Minnesota the perfect place to do business,” noted Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development Commissioner Matt Varilek. “ We are excited to welcome Meta to Minnesota, and to continue encouraging companies everywhere to join us here.”

“We are proud to partner with Meta as they build a next-generation data center in our region,” added Peter Frosch, president and CEO of GREATER MSP. “This facility is part of the cutting-edge industries we’re creating in the Greater MSP region that will power the AI tools we need for problem-solving in med tech, regenerative agriculture, sustainable aviation fuel and others. With this and other soon-to-be announced investments, we are on the path to recapturing Minnesota’s national leadership in advanced technology.”
