Plano, TexasStream Data Centers has acquired 16 acres of land at Legacy Business Park, a master-planned, mixed-use development located in Plano, where the national data center services provider is planning to build a new state-of-the-art development.

Stream Data Centers develops and operates data center facilities for corporate users, including fully commissioned private data centers and powered-shell ready-to-fit data centers. Since 1999, the company has provided space for enterprise data center users including Apple, AT&T, The Home Depot, Nokia and others. During that time, Stream has acquired and developed more than 1.5 million square feet of data center space in Texas, Minneapolis, California and Colorado, representing more than 150 megawatts of power.

Plans at the new Texas location call for a 210,000-square-foot ground-up development. The purpose-built data center will be constructed using Miami-Dade County Building Code Standards, providing the ability to withstand sustained 185-mph straight-line winds. Additionally, Stream is utilizing accredited construction and design practices required for the project to achieve LEED Silver certification.

The new facility will mark Stream’s second data center in Legacy Business Park and its fourth development in the Dallas market in the last four years. Groundbreaking is expected in the second quarter of 2016. The project should be ready for occupancy in the first quarter of 2017.
