SCHEDULED TO BE OPERATIONAL IN THE SPRING
Hyperscale campus provider Vantage Data Centers, has announced the topping out of its first data center facility in Goodyear, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix.
Located on Vantage’s 50 acre campus site within Goodyear’s “Bullard Tech Corridor,” the new data center facility is a single-story building that will deliver up to 32MW of power capacity, also marking the first phase of the campus development.
Upon full development, the Phoenix Campus will include 3 data center buildings and offer a total of 160MW capacity across more than 1 million square feet of space. As announced, the first phase of the development is scheduled to be operational in the spring.
“As we continue to expand globally, Vantage is also increasing our footprint across North America to meet our customers growing needs, providing high-quality data centers in strategic markets. Our customers have identified Phoenix as an ideal location due to its low power costs, rich connectivity and business-friendly environment. This is a fitting market for hyperscalers, cloud providers and larger enterprises who need a west coast presence for their digital infrastructure requirements,” said Jeff Tench, president, North America, Vantage Data Centers.
“We are excited Vantage chose Goodyear for its flagship location in the southwest region. The company’s commitment to sustainability is demonstrated by design decisions which virtually eliminate water for cooling. The city of Goodyear has established itself as a dynamic locality by attracting top technology companies and knowledge-based jobs. We look forward to a sustained partnership as the first facility opens its doors next year,” said Brannon Hampton, Vice Mayor of Goodyear.
To mark this construction milestone, a topping out celebration was held on the campus site in honor of placing the last beam of steel atop the data center structure, and the event attendees included Vice Mayor Brannon Hampton, Council Member Joe Pizzillo, Council Member Sheri Lauritano, Council Member Bill Stipp, Assistant to the Council John Raeder, city staff and officials from Layton Construction.
