NEW ALBANY, Ohio (24-7 News)--Tech company Google is looking at locating a 600-million dollar data center in New Albany.
The New Albany City Council announced Tuesday it had approved a tax abatement deal which would allow a Google subsidiary to build the new center on 447-acres in the New Albany International Business Park.
If it moves forward, Google would become the third major tech company to move into the area after Amazon and Facebook.
The Central Ohio region has become a favorite spot for tech companies to invest placing data centers lately because of ideal weather conditions and smaller risks of flooding or earthquakes.
