The West Des Moines City Council is expected tonight to consider financial incentives to help a new $255 million project called "Project Alluvion," KCCI reported late last week.

An undisclosed developer is asking the city and state for incentives and infrastructure improvements to help with the project. Tax increment financing support is expected to total about $18 million.

The project would be built in four phases and city officials have been told that it would create about 84 jobs.

The West Des Moines city planners are recommending that the council support the project as it seeks incentives from the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

The project is expected to be a data center, The Des Moines Register reported. Both Facebook Inc. and Microsoft Corp. have opened data centers in Greater Des Moines in the past few years.
