Steady Progress at Ferrara Candy Co. and Facebook Sites

Steady progress can be seen in these aerial photos over the construction at both the Ferrara Candy Company and the Facebook Data Center on DeKalb’s South Side. Shaw Media’s licensed drone pilot Scott Anderson obtained permission from the DeKalb Taylor Municipal Airport to do some photos and videos over the location.

The buildings at Ferrara are starting to take shape in the ChicagoWest Business Center on the north side of Gurler Road near the intersection of Route 23. The 505-acre property across the street is being graded and the land is being set up for construction to begin on Facebook’s 16th data center in the world.

The social media giant is investing $800 million into a 907,000-square-foot facility which will be dubbed the Facebook DeKalb Data Center, according to a news release from the company.
