Mayor Mike Moore joined local and state leaders, including Governor Eric Holcomb, the River Ridge Development Authority, and One Southern Indiana Chamber & Economic Development to announce Meta’s newest Data Center, which will be located in Jeffersonville at River Ridge Commerce Center.

Meta owns and operates Facebook, Instagram, Threads, and WhatsApp.

“What an honor it is to stand here and say Meta, welcome to Jeffersonville,” Moore said. “Times have changed. We are now driven by technology.”

This $800-million investment will include a 619-acre campus with a nearly 700,000-square-foot facility. At peak construction, this project will create more than 1200 construction jobs.

Meta will employ 100 people in the tech field and will be fully supported by renewable energy. Meta leaders praised Jeffersonville for its great access to infrastructure, renewal energy, strong talent, and community.

Governor Holcomb said this announcement positions Indiana to reach its goal of becoming the AI Capital of the Midwest. The Jeffersonville Data Center will be an important part of Meta’s global infrastructure.
