Ohio officials have approved an incentive package for CitiCorp North America, which is building a 300,000 square foot, $465 million data center near Columbus, according to Columbus Business First. Officials in Liberty Township say the facility, which could create 55 to 60 jobs, is slated to be constructed at the Park at Greif, a corporate office park on the west side of Route 23.

Jobs at the facility are expected to pay an average of $50,000 per year, creating new annual wages of $2.8 million in Delaware County, he said. Liberty Township is offering a 72 percent abatement on real property taxes for 15 years, as well as a 60 percent abatement on equipment for two years.
