A national developer of massive data centers has announced plans to upgrade and repurpose a 418,000 square foot warehouse in the growing high-tech city of Goodyear, Arizona.
Stream Data Centers, which is based in Dallas, says the project will go up on nearly 160 acres the company recently purchased.
According to reports, initial work on the project may only represent its first phase, with more than 1 million additional square feet being built in the future.
Site work will also include a substation to power the center which will be put up by the Arizona Public Service Electric Company.
In a statement, Robert Kennedy, co-managing partner of Stream Data Centers, said the company decided to build in the Goodyear-Phoenix metro area because it has “quickly emerged as one of the top destinations” in the country for data and cloud operations.
Stream Data Centers was founded in 1999 and has so far developed more than 2.5 million square feet of data center space across the country.
Last year, the company announced plans to launch a new 138,000 square foot data center on a 400,000 square foot campus in Garland, Texas, just months after starting work on a 128,000 square foot center in metro Chicago.
