Skybox Datacenters, an expert mission-critical data centre developer, owner, and operator, has commenced the development of a new data centre campus, PowerCampus Dallas, in partnership with developer Bandera Ventures and Principal Asset Management. The campus will boast up to 300 megawatts (MW) of power supported by a private onsite substation, with up to one million-square-feet of data centre space. PowerCampus Dallas, located just south of the heart of downtown Dallas, is in one of the fastest-growing data centre submarkets in the nation. The campus is surrounded by some of the strongest infrastructure in the region, providing seamless interconnections and unparallelled expansion capabilities.
The Dallas market is one of the nation’s primary peering and interconnection hubs, featuring excellent proximity to cloud providers and exchanges as well as substantial network availability to major metros. In addition to Dallas’s low energy costs and access to renewable power, PowerCampus Dallas is designed to allow users to benefit from available local and state tax incentives. Texas offers a state sales tax exemption on electricity or equipment for qualified data centres, reducing the cost for data centre customers to deploy large-scale footprints in Texas.
PowerCampus is the latest product from Skybox Datacenters for large-scale data centre assets tailored to hyperscale clients across major and emerging U.S. markets. PowerCampus Dallas will strategically address emerging high-density compute needs in the Dallas area providing up to 300 MWs of power.
“PowerCampus Dallas will raise the bar in the North Texas data centre market and beyond,” says Rob Morris, CEO of Skybox Datacenters. “This partnership brings together expertise in multiple disciplines that are critical for delivering significant capacity in this dynamic data centre market.”
“The partnership with Skybox and Bandera continues Principal’s long commitment to the data centre sector,” said Ben Wobschall, managing director, real estate, Principal Asset Management. “With over $3 billion committed to the data centre sector over the past 17 years, we’ve been able to witness the evolution of the sector first-hand and are excited to utilise strategic partnerships like this one to drive continued success for our clients and customers.”
