We now know which company is planning to build a billion dollar data center in Altoona.

The Des Moines Register reports that Facebook is coming to town.

City officials have been telling us for months that someone was planning to build in their town, but wouldn’t reveal who exactly it was.

The official announcement from Altoona and Facebook is expected next week.

There is no word yet on how many jobs the project will create in the metro.
