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 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.
