Skybox Datacenters, a Dallas-based datacenter developer, has commenced construction on Skybox Houston One, an 86,960-square-foot purpose-built datacenter initially offering four private 10,000-square-foot data halls and able to expand to 12 data halls within its 20-acre campus. The colocation facility is located in the fast-growing Energy Corridor of Houston, Texas and completion is expected in November of 2014.
The Energy Corridor in Houston is home to many of the top oil & gas and energy companies and has seen significant growth in recent years.
Skybox Houston One boasts 12.5 megawatts of critical load and is powered by a loop-fed, 300-megawatt electric utility substation immediately adjacent to the site. Skybox Datacenters is providing power utility reliability by equipping users with both dual feed A/B utility power feeds in underground concrete encased duct banks and Premium Rollover Service in the power utility equipment configuration.
Skybox focuses on purpose-built colocation facilities in the wholesale segment of the market and is capable of speculative or build-to-suit projects. Skybox Datacenters is a joint venture between Rugen Street Capital and Bandera Ventures.
