Google Plans Data Center in Storey County, Nevada
The Google project was approved for a 2 percent sales tax abatement for 20 years as an incentive that is worth an estimated $16.8 million and a 75 percent personal property tax abatement for 20 years that is worth an estimated $8.25 million. The company expects the facility to be fully operational sometime next year.
Google will also double its $600 million investment in its Henderson data center, which is under construction since last year and expected to open next year, the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development said. “With this latest announcement, Google will bring their total investment in the city of Henderson to $1.2 billion,” said Mayor Debra March. “We are excited to see them grow both as a community partner and as an employer of high-quality technology jobs in Henderson.”
“We’re thrilled to announce the expansion of our data center investment in the city of Henderson,” said Google official Andrew Silvestri. “We’ve loved calling Henderson home since July 2019, and we’re grateful to City Council for their continued partnership, which is enabling the growth of our presence there.”
The company will be doubling their original investment and bringing their total Southern Nevada investment to $1.2 billion. When combined with the approval of the Storey County Data Center today, their total proposed investment to the State of Nevada is more than $1.8 billion.
“This is a very good deal for Nevada,” said Michael Brown, GOED executive director. “In return for the $25 million abatement that Google will receive, the company will make a $427 million impact on the economy over 20 years and generate $94 million in tax revenue over 20 years.”
