Two massive data center development deals moved forward in the Phoenix metro. One involves a $500-million data center expansion project, and the other a 56.5-acre land acquisition envisioned for a one-million-square-foot data center campus.
IO Data Centers received approval from the city of Phoenix for a high-tech complex near Van Buren and 48th streets and the Loop 202 freeway. The company plans to invest $359,000 on infrastructure improvements at the 11-acre site.
Washington D.C.-based DuPont Fabros Technology Inc. acquired the undeveloped land in Mesa, AZ, and plans to build a data center campus. The site is located on Crismon Road near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
The Phoenix area is emerging as a top data center market, with companies such as Apple Inc. and Intel Corp. also locating data center facilities there.
