1M SF Data Center Set for Garland

DALLAS–RagingWire Data Centers, an NTT Communications group company, has purchased 42 acres in Garland and plans to build a 1 million-square-foot, 80- megawatt data center campus.

Construction will begin immediately.  Leasing of wholesale build-to-suit vaults, custom data center buildings, and retail colocation cages and racks is expected to commence by September 2016.

“RagingWire and NTT do business on a large scale, in a first-class way, and I expect this development to be a game-changer for North Texas,” said Bo Bond, managing director/regional director at JLL.

The parcel of land is near other primary data center locations in Richardson, Plano and Carrollton.  The city of Garland and Garland Power & Lighthave been particularly supportive of RagingWire’s expansion, providing planning assistance, economic development incentives and expert collaboration, a rep for JLL says.
