PHOENIX – Microsoft reportedly is gobbling up another chunk of land in Goodyear, the tech behemoth’s second recent real estate deal in the West Valley suburb.
Citing real estate database Vizzda, the Phoenix Business Journal reported Tuesday that Microsoft has paid $37 million for another 147 acres in the city.
The land at Citrus and Indian School roads is about 9 miles from the 279 acres Microsoft purchased for $48 million in September 2018.
In February, the Goodyear City Council approved an accelerated construction schedule on that parcel, which is near Phoenix Goodyear Airport and State Route 85.
The company hasn’t revealed its plans for the Goodyear property.
When reached for comment, representatives from the city and Microsoft said they would look into it.
The new purchase isn’t far from where dairy company Fairlife is partnering with Coca-Cola on a new $200 million facility to produce its lactose-free milk beverages.
Goodyear also recently moved ahead with plans to build a civic square with a new city hall, library, park and more.
