Retail colocation company Stream Data Centers has acquired approximately 23 acres of land for the construction of their new Dallas-area campus development in Garland, Texas. When completed in late 2018, the newly-constructed DFW VII facility will offer an expandable 140,000 square foot data center with redundant 40 MW utility feeds from an on-site substation provided by Oncor. Ultimately, the data center campus will total approximately 400,000 square feet.
“Stream’s DFW VII data center will follow a successful formula from our previous Dallas-area developments and benefit from the best practices and improvements we’ve made along the way,” said Paul Moser, Co-Managing Partner, Stream Data Centers.
Stream Data Centers‘ new DFW campus development will feature:
- A 22.66-acre site in Garland, Texas located on Lookout Drive, in close proximity to “robust” Northeast Dallas, Richardson and Garland amenities, power and fiber infrastructure.
- Initial 140,000 square-foot structurally-enhanced data center with land available for multiple phases.
- Two 40 MW utility feeds from a new on-site Oncor substation offering power at competitive transmission rates.
- Two diverse telco entrances, with multiple fiber providers and a strong mix of local, long haul and dark fiber providers to the site through multiple routes.
- Designed to meet or exceed size and capital investment requirements under House Bill 1223 sales tax exemption program.
- Optimal location outside of flight paths, railways and FEMA 500 year floodplain.
Stream Data Centers has worked with multiple network service providers to secure diverse dark fiber paths back to the major carrier hotels and cloud interconnection locations, allowing customers to expand beyond the providers that are in the immediate area with access to 100+ network and cloud providers. The data center site will offer numerous different paths between any major interconnection point or data center in the metro area.
“Our new development in Garland, Texas seeks to address the growing needs of cloud companies and enterprise users in and around the Dallas market,” added Mr. Moser. “We believe that our DFW VII data center will meet the needs of companies looking for highly-secure and resilient data center space with low-latency connectivity in the Dallas market.”
