Lowe's Eyes San Antonio for Data Center

Lowe's is considering San Antonio and several other sites for a 100,000 square foot data center.

Home improvement retailer Lowe's Cos. is considering sites for a $68 million data center in San Antonio, according to the San Antonio Business Journal. The proposed 100,000-square-foot data center would employ about 30 people and create as many as 300 construction jobs. The San Antonio region is competing with two states and other Texas locations for the projects, sources said.

"We're a good community for their data center, but as yet there has been no final announcement," said Ramiro Cavazos, the city's economic development director. "We will continue working with Lowe's and respect their process of decision making, and we're hopeful they will pick San Antonio."
