U.S. Bank to build $250 million data center in Chaska

U.S. Bank has announced plans to build a $250 million data center in Chaska that will eventually employ 18 workers.
The bank will partner with Dallas-based Stream Data Centers on the 56,000-square-foot facility, which should take one year to build.
"The thing that we like is that these are higher-skill jobs, and the chances are that those workers might end up moving out here in time," said Mark Windschitl, mayor of Chaska, a southwest metro city in Carver County.
"The biggest thing is we have our own power company, and the data center will be a big power user," Windschitl said, so the city will benefit from electricity revenue as well as from property taxes.
