$5B Switch data center in Steelcase pyramid is ‘Michigan’s to lose’

The state tax exemptions being sought by a Nevada data center company to locate in the former Steelcase pyramid are essential to the company’s plans to invest $5 billion and create at least 1,000 jobs, an executive with Switch said Monday, Nov. 30.

“It’s Michigan’s to lose,” Adam Kramer, senior vice president of strategy for Switch, said in a telephone interview with MLive and the Grand Rapids Press.

“Pass this and we come. Don’t pass this and we won’t,” said Kramer, one day before the state House Committee on Tax Policy was scheduled to conduct a hearing on three bills that would exempt data centers from paying state sales taxes, use taxes and property taxes.
