Google is expected to build a data center in Henderson near Warm Springs Road and Boulder Highway.

In an application submitted to Clark County has been approved, Designs LLC, detailed how they will build up and own the property while Google will operate and employ workers.

The reason for this new data center, according to Designs, is an increase in Google’s customer base and demand for producers and services.

This new center will also bring more jobs to the area. About 50 permanent positions will be inside, and more than 3,000 temporary construction jobs to build it all up.

The Center would bring in an estimated 94 million dollars in tax revenue over the next twenty years, according to Design.

13 Action News spoke with folks who live here in Henderson who say they’re excited about the center and say the construction goes to show the growth of Southern Nevada.

Others though are not exactly thrilled and say they're starting to lose the small town feel that once was.

“When you bring in more people, you have more crime, you have more traffic,” said Amy, Henderson resident.

“I’m all for creating jobs, I love what the economy is doing but let's keep the jobs to our local people."

The data site expected to open its doors in 2020.
