Microsoft expanding its SA footprint

microsoft_logoMicrosoft Corp. continues to invest in its San Antonio data center clusters, including about $50 million for a new building near its Westover Hills computer server farm, according to state construction documents.

The new cooling facility on the 5100 block of Rogers Road is expected to be completed in September. The facility is for cooling a 256,000 square foot data center in Westover Hills. It opened in 2015 and cost about $80 million to build, according to public documents.

The central utility building will hold water cooled centrifugal chillers and other mechanical and electrical infrastructure so the existing data centers will have expanded cooling capacity.

Microsoft has the sixth largest total of taxable property in Bexar County with $587 million in market value as of 2016 and $374 million in taxable value, records show. The difference is due to a significant tax abatement as part of economic incentive agreements with local government entities.
