Yahoo! Confirms Plan to Build Data Center in WNY

yahoo_logo-1Though the rumor mill has had this pegged for over a month, it’s now official, according to this morning’s press conference – Yahoo! is coming to WNY, and bringing at least 75 jobs with them.  According to Yahoo!, ground will be broken this August on a 190,000 square foot facility at the Lockport Industrial Park, in Lockport. The facility is expected to be completed and opened by May 2010.

The Western NY region won Yahoo! over thanks to discounted energy from the New York Power Authority and other incentives offered by the Empire State Development Corporation.
