REACHING 150MW UPON FULL BUILD
Colocation provider Stack Infrastructure, has announced its plan to launch into Phoenix with the acquisition of a new 79 acre site in Avondale, Arizona.
Expanding its North American footprint, Stack stated that in 12 months, the site will be available for hyperscale campuses and build-to-suit data centers, wholesale colocation and private data suites, and feature its powered shell options.
“Stack sees tremendous potential in Phoenix. The access to power, fiber, and land provides outstanding opportunity for scale, and the State of Arizona and City of Avondale teams are true partners,” said Brian Cox, Chief Executive Officer of Stack Infrastructure.
“This new market is one of the nation’s most important hyperscale availability zones and will afford our clients unparalleled access to scalable capacity, renewable energy and sustained growth in the southwest.”
According to the company, the Avondale region provides a promising market spot for digital products and services in the U.S. and offers significant opportunities for scale, low risk for natural disasters, and a good amount of solar resources for sustainable power.
Stack further disclosed that the Avondale site will benefit from Arizona 10-year tax waiver as well as local sales tax rebates for both data center equipment purchases and labor expenses.
The site acquisition gives Stack the opportunity to add more than 150MW of capacity and 1 million square feet of data center facility upon full development.
The company is now having quite a number of expansion projects on its desk, as it plans to build a stronger portfolio after been created about a year ago by Investment fund IPI Partners.
Few weeks ago, Stack announced plans to expand its campus facility in Atlanta with the development of a new 12MW data center on a recently acquired 6-acre land, which is sited adjacent to the company’s existing facility in Alpharetta, Atlanta, Georgia.
Earlier this year, Stack Infrastructure announced plans to develop a new 32MW data center on its Silicon Valley campus located in San Jose, a facility that will be served power through utility PG&E’s Direct Access programme.
