Microsoft buys land in West Valley, continuing expansion in Arizona
PHOENIX — Microsoft has bought a third chunk of land in metro Phoenix, continuing to leave its footprint in Arizona.
The company confirmed to KTAR News 92.3 FM that it intends to “develop world-class datacenter [sic] facilities” on the El Mirage land.
More than 150 acres of land was purchased for $20 million.
The statement said the purchase was part of plans to “support the growing demand for cloud and internet services” in Arizona and the western U.S.
Microsoft has already purchased more than 400 acres of land in Goodyear, which will also be used to build energy-efficient data centers.
A timeline for the developments was not given.
