However another hyperscale project in Goodyear. Data center developer and operator Stream is currently planning a hyperscale campus in Goodyear, Arizona. The business has acquired 157 acres of land, envisioning a 418, 000 sq foot facility with up to 50MW of power capability – and that is only the first phase of the project. New data halls are expected to welcome clients in the first quarter of 2020.
Really excellent year
Dallas based Stream has been building data centres since 1999. Up to now, it’s developed over 2.5 million sq legs of white space over the US, with total power capability in excess of 250MW.
The upcoming campus in Goodyear represents the company’s first foray into the Phoenix market, it’s significant to keep in mind that the local Dallas / Fort Worth metro lately emerged as the second largest data center market in the usa, according to Site Selection Team. The wording of the news release implies that the property isn’t empty – it isn’t clear what currently occupies the site in Goodyear, but whatever it’s, Stream said it might redevelop the existing facility, into a data center. The business could possibly expand the campus to provide up to 2 million sq legs of technical and office area – almost just as much as the total number of real estate that it’s built over the last two decades.
To prepare for potential expansion, the campus will comprise an onsite substation that will be built by Arizona Public Service Electric Company, with supreme power capability of 350MW. The Phoenix market has emerged as one of the main destinations in the Western US for cloud and enterprise companies, said Robert Kennedy, co partner of Stream data centers. A professional business environment with a sales tax incentive program, low threat of natural disaster and latency to significant Markets in the West Coast, Midwest and Texas have fueled tremendous growth for this marketplace. We anticipate establishing a significant campus and long term relationship with Goodyear, APS and the Greater Phoenix region. Goodyear has been attracting a lot of attention from hyperscalers in 2019: it was Vantage, announcing plans for a 160MW campus on the corner of Bullard Avenue and Van Buren Street, a week later, Compass Datacenters disclosed it purchased 200 acres down the road, for its new, yet unnamed colocation brand. We’re Very pleased to welcome another best-in class company to our fast growing bunch of high tech businesses. We’re thankful for their commitment to Goodyear and foresees a bright future ahead, said Mayor of the town.
