FACEBOOK CHOOSES GALLATIN  FOR DATACENTER


Rendering of Gallatin First Building

It started three years ago with a simple inquiry from a prospect looking to locate a data center. As the company we called Woolhawk narrowed its site selection, Gallatin stayed on the list, and stayed, and stayed. We are proud to finally announce that Facebook is building an $800 million state-of-the-art datacenter in Gallatin, Tennessee!

Welcome Facebook!

GALLATIN GETS IT

A 217-year-old city doesn’t stay alive simply by existing. It stays alive because it grows. Smart growth. Pro-active growth. Gallatin balances the ability to welcome the new, but also politely say “no thank you” to something that we know won’t thrive here. #GallatinTn is going up across the board: population, economy, and investment. We’re truly a city that invests in itself. Our mission is a resilient and diverse economy. 

Recognized as one of the top “power suburbs” in the United States, Gallatin boasts high-paying jobs and low taxes. Economic health, rich in education excellence, a thriving arts scene, and a vibrant retail environment make Gallatin a hub for family life. And a big plus: we’re 23 miles northeast of downtown Nashville, a city filling with young professionals and big-name businesses. Amazon. AllianceBernstein. Ernst & Young. Lyft. Warby Parker.

WHAT ARE THEY BUILDING?

Get Your Ozone Going

Gallatin has a federally designated Opportunity Zone. If you know what that is and how it could work for you, jump to the picture and click to Gallatin's Opportunity Zone Prospectus with maps and project ideas.

If you're asking, "What the heck is an Opportunity Zone," - we feel you. OZones were added to the U.S. tax code in December, 2017. The IRS is still formulating rules. In short, they are areas where new investments may be eligible for preferential tax treatment, aka savings to you. Check out the FAQs at the IRS.

Gallatin's OZone includes the core historic downtown, the hospital, the Board of Education, an elementary school, Town Creek and its greenway, industrial property, a golf course, and both new and historic residential development. 

Give us a shout, we're excited to help you with your OZone project!
