PLANS US$305 MILLION INVESTMENT
Multi-tenant data center provider DC BLOX, has just acquired land in High Point, North Carolina with plans to construct its tier III data center on the site.
The planned DC BLOX High Point facility will be precisely located on Sheraton Court near the intersection of Routes 40 and 73 and off Piedmont Parkway, about 10 miles from the Piedmont Triad International Airport.
“The High Point Economic Development Corporation, the Guilford County Economic Development Alliance, the City of High Point and Guilford County have been great partners supporting and enabling DC BLOX to develop a new Tier III data center in this location, approving tax incentives which will accelerate growth for DC BLOX and our customers,” said Jeff Uphues, CEO of DC BLOX.
“When complete, our $305 million investment will enable enterprise businesses across industries, local and state government agencies, higher education institutions and managed service providers across North Carolina with major market capabilities, connectivity solutions and highly reliable services to enable effective digital transformation.”
The carrier-neutral data center is designed to offer up to 18MW of critical load capacity across up to 54,000 square feet of data hall space. This new facility will join the interconnected data center fabric of DC BLOX’s sites in Birmingham, Atlanta, Huntsville, Chattanooga and Greenville which is under construction.
“DC BLOX has chosen High Point to build a multi-tenant data center that could add more than $305 million to our tax base, which is the largest capital investment project for High Point in the 15 years since I have been with the High Point EDC. We are grateful for the company’s confidence in our city and our community,” said Sandy Dunbeck, High Point Economic Development Interim Director.
When complete, DC BLOX’s High Point data center is expected to offer colocation, interconnection solutions, and hybrid cloud as well as disaster recovery and cloud storage capabilities for businesses in the Piedmont Triad area including High Point, Greensboro and Winston-Salem, NC.
