Large data center planned for construction in Lincoln
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Plans have been filed for what appears to be a large data center just north of Lincoln.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that a company called Agate LLC filed the plans with the Lincoln-Lancaster County Planning Department for a data center at 56th Street and Interstate 80 that would be built on 590 acres.
A site plan shows at least two buildings as part of an initial phase, but few other details are in the application. A traffic study submitted with the plans says construction could start next year and involve as many as 500 workers.
The Journal Star reports that Agate, which has a Delaware address on documents filed with the Nebraska Secretary of State’s Office, appears to be a front company for some other entity. State and local officials who confirmed they had been working on the project decline to provide other details to the newspaper.
