Facebook is coming to Alabama.
The $750 million data center coming to Huntsville, approved two weeks ago by the Huntsville City Council under the guise of a masking name, was revealed Thursday.
The announcement is the latest economic development coup for bustling Huntsville and Facebook lends a eye-catching brand to the Rocket City’s prosperity.
“I’ve been here for a number of announcements like this,” TVA President Bill Johnson said. “I’ve figured out what’s happening here. This isn’t a coincidence. This is like Alabama football. We out-train, we out-prepare and we out-recruit the other team. So you know what I’m going to say: Roll, Huntsville!”
