A 61 ACRE DATA CENTER CAMPUS
Data center provider Evoque, has entered a joint venture agreement with Archer Datacenters to develop a 61-acre Nashville data center campus in Gallatin, Tennessee.
Located approximately 35 miles from Downtown Nashville in Gallatin, Evoque and Archer plan to deliver about 100MW of power capacity and more than 500,000 square feet of data center space from the campus, targeting data center demands of the United States’ Central Southeast region.
“The opportunity to expand into the Nashville market and to serve hyperscalers, cloud service providers, and large enterprises is exciting,” said Andy Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of Evoque.
“Archer, and their Founder Jordan Milman had great vision that has since been validated by Meta’s new data center, which is adjacent to our location. Evoque looks forward to maximizing the potential of this opportunity and to deliver more best-in-breed digital infrastructure solutions to more enterprises.”
The 61-acre campus is comprised of an original 28.5 acre property which contains an 82,000 square foot data center shell, and another 32.8 acre parcel which is adjacent the original property. Currently, the whole campus has access to about 40MW of power from Gallatin Department of Electricity’s (GDE) adjacent substation, further expecting a continuous update in the transmission capacity of GDE and Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).
Already, Evoque has earmarked $200 million to accelerate the expansion of the site, which includes a commitment to building a 100% renewable energy solution.
“With their commitment to operational excellence, sustainable energy capabilities, and forward-thinking leadership, we view Evoque as the ideal partner to help to realize our vision for the premier data center campus in the greater Nashville region,” said Jordan Milman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Archer Datacenters.
“We look forward to continuing to champion this location alongside Evoque to create an attractive solution for both hyperscale and enterprise customers looking to scale in one of the most dynamic markets in the country.”
Evoque is a portfolio company of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners, which was established in 2019 with an initial portfolio of 31 datacenters acquired from AT&T in a $1.1 billion acquisition deal.
