The newest $1 billion Facebook data center came online last week in Fort Worth, Texas. This is only the first building on what will eventually become a sprawling data center campus.

Construction of the second and third buildings has already started, with fourth and fifth coming in the future, the Fort Worth data center site manager KC Timmons wrote in a blog post.

Just last week the company filed for permits for a 500,000-square foot addition to the campus.

The facility is powered by a 200MW wind project Facebook brought online together with Citigroup Energy, Alterra Power Corporation, and Starwood Energy Group.
