Stream Data Centers, an industry leader in providing premium data center solutions, announced that it has acquired a 418KSF facility on 157 acres of land in Goodyear, Arizona, where it will establish a data center campus for hyperscale and enterprise customers in the Greater Phoenix region. Initially, Stream will redevelop the existing facility, which at full build-out will contain approximately 50 MW of critical load and will be fully operational for customers in the first quarter of 2020.
This acquisition marks the company’s entrance into the Phoenix market and will enable it to scale with the needs of the area’s growing number of cloud providers and enterprise users. At full build, the entire campus can support approximately 2 million square feet. Stream will dedicate land for an onsite substation to be constructed by Arizona Public Service Electric Company (APS) with ultimate power capacity of 350 MW.
“The Phoenix market has quickly emerged as one of the top destinations in the Western US for enterprise and cloud companies,” notes Robert Kennedy, co-managing partner of Stream Data Centers. “A pro-business environment with a great sales tax incentive program, low risk of natural disaster and low latency to major markets on the West Coast, Midwest and Texas have fueled tremendous growth for this market. We look forward to establishing a major campus and long-term relationship with Goodyear, APS and the Greater Phoenix region.”
“Stream Data Centers’ confidence and investment into the Goodyear market will provide high-end jobs and innovative cloud-based technology solutions for years to come,” said Mayor Georgia Lord. “We are very excited to welcome another best-in-class company to our rapidly expanding cluster of high-tech businesses. We are thankful for their commitment to Goodyear and foresee a bright future ahead.”
