Dallas-based data center provider Stream Data Centers has snapped up 16 acres of land to develop a new data center development within Legacy Business Park in Plano. The developer plans to build a 210,000-square-foot data center that will have the ability to withstand sustained 185-mph winds. Stream is seeking LEED Silver certification for the project. This continues Stream Data Centers’ expansion in the Lone Star state, and adds to the company’s portfolio, said Rob Kennedy, co-managing director of Stream Data Centers.”This facility will provide enterprise users with an attractive wholesale option in one of the area’s fastest growing markets,” he said in a statement.
Dallas-Fort Worth is the No. 2 data center market in the country based on the megawatt absorption in 2015, according to JLL’s latest Data Center Perspective. JLL’s Bo Bond told me he expects to see a lot of data center development this year. Get more of Bond’s insight in tomorrow’s issue of the Dallas Business Journal. This new Legacy Business Park data center will be Stream’s second in the immediate vicinity and fourth development in North Texas in the past four years.
Stream Data Centers plans to begin construction on the site in the second quarter of 2016, with occupancy slated for early 2017.
