QTS has bought a former semiconductor plant in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro it plans to turn into a data center for an undisclosed sum. This is the Overland Park, Kansas-based company’s first entry into the Dallas market.
The acquisition falls into the data center provider’s development strategy to obtain and revitalize large properties in high-demand and growing data center markets.
The facility sits on a 40-acre campus in the Irving-Las Colinas area. It measures 700,000sq ft – a footprint that can be doubled on the same campus.
The campus is powered by an on-site 140MW dual-fed substation. In addition, the facility’s diverse fiber network connections will allow QTS to provide carrier-neutral connectivity.
