Skybox Datacenters and Bandera Ventures Commence Development of 300-megawatt Data Center Campus in Dallas

PowerCampusTM Dallas is the first joint-venture project with Principal Asset ManagementSM, totaling up to one million square feet of data center space

DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / November 20, 2023 / Skybox Datacenters, an expert mission-critical data center developer, owner, and operator, announced today it has commenced the development of a new data center campus, PowerCampus Dallas, in partnership with developer Bandera Ventures and Principal Asset Management. The campus will boast up to 300 megawatts (MW) of power supported by a private onsite substation, with up to one million-square-feet of data center space. PowerCampus Dallas, located just south of the heart of downtown Dallas, is in one of the fastest-growing data center submarkets in the nation. The campus is surrounded by some of the strongest infrastructure in the region, providing seamless interconnections and unparalleled expansion capabilities.

The Dallas market is one of the nation's primary peering and interconnection hubs, featuring excellent proximity to cloud providers and exchanges as well as substantial network availability to major metros. In addition to Dallas's low energy costs and access to renewable power, PowerCampus Dallas is designed to allow users to benefit from available local and state tax incentives. Texas offers a state sales tax exemption on electricity or equipment for qualified data centers, reducing the cost for data center customers to deploy large-scale footprints in Texas.

PowerCampus is the latest product from Skybox Datacenters for large-scale data center assets tailored to hyperscale clients across major and emerging U.S. markets. PowerCampus Dallas will strategically address emerging high-density compute needs in the Dallas area providing up to 300 MWs of power.

"PowerCampus Dallas will raise the bar in the North Texas data center market and beyond," says Rob Morris, CEO of Skybox Datacenters. "This partnership brings together expertise in multiple disciplines that are critical for delivering significant capacity in this dynamic data center market."

"The partnership with Skybox and Bandera continues Principal's long commitment to the data center sector," said Ben Wobschall, managing director, real estate, Principal Asset Management. "With over $3 billion committed to the data center sector over the past 17 years, we've been able to witness the evolution of the sector first-hand and are excited to utilize strategic partnerships like this one to drive continued success for our clients and customers."
