Facebook Inc. is set to build a $1 billion data center in eastern Henrico County, Va., the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch reported, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The first phase of the facility, which will stand in the White Oak Technology Park, will span about 970,000 square feet and will create about 100 full-time jobs.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is expected to make the official announcement about the project Oct. 5.

The tech giant has also announced plans to build data centers in Denmark and Nebraska.
