Microsoft Corp. confirmed Friday that it's looking at San Antonio for a new building, and people close to the deal say the software giant is close to announcing plans to build a huge $980 million data center in Westover Hills.
Microsoft is looking to create a 470,000-square-foot structure that would employ about 100 people and would be next to the $68 million Lowe's Cos. Inc.'s data center announced earlier this year, according to a source with knowledge of the project. The data centers will be near each other so they can share some infrastructure related to cooling the buildings, he said.
