CyrusOne to build in Texas and expand existing data centre

In efforts to expand and optimise connectivity in the United States, CyrusOne has announced a new data centre in Dallas, Texas, investing US$31.5m

CyrusOne is planning to build a new data centre in the Allen area of Dallas, Texas.

The company has filed with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation for a new data centre project along Chelsea Boulevard in Collin County. The DFW4 shell and uplift project will see the company invest US$31.5m in a new single-story data centre with a two-story office component.

Construction on the 126,000 sq ft (11,700 sqm) facility is set to begin in January 2024 and run until the following September. JHET Architects is the design firm on the project.

Texas data boom fuels expansion

CyrusOne first announced plans for a data centre campus in Allen, at 2300 Chelsea Blvd, in 2017. The campus was originally set to span three buildings, with the first facility delivering 350,950 sq ft (32,600 sq m), and the following two adding another 619,100 sq ft (57,500 sqm) and 412,800 sq ft (38,300 sqm) respectively.

In August 2022 the company filed to expand Building 1 at the Allen campus, aiming to add an additional 80,620 sq ft (7,500 sqm) data hall.

CyrusOne also operates two other campuses around the Dallas-Fort Worth area - a location that has long been a hub for data centre development. These sites include DFW1 in Carrollton and DFW2 in Lewisville, in addition to two sites in Austin and three in San Antonio.

The company is a leading global data centre developer and operator that specialises in delivering state-of-the-art digital infrastructure solutions. With more than 50 high-performance, mission-critical facilities worldwide, CyrusOne ensures the continued operation of digital infrastructure for nearly 1,000 customers, including 200 Fortune 1000 companies.

Construction for this latest project is expected to start in January and finish in September 2024.

Committed to advancing in a sustainable way

CyrusOne is a company continually committed to sustainable advancements. In April 2023, the company became the first to inform the Pact Board that all its fully operational data centres in Europe had been independently audited to comply with the Pact’s terms. It worked to assess all facilities and has demonstrated that it is currently on-target to be climate-neutral by 2030.

2022 was a year of milestones for the company with regards to sustainability, with important achievements in each of its “Big Four” environmental categories: climate, water, biodiversity, and circularity.

In an interview with Data Centre Magazine, Vice President of European Operations Steve Hayward admitted that, despite 100% renewable electricity, the company “aren’t there yet” with its facilities in the US. He stated that this was “due to the nature of the sites and market making achieving this goal more complex.”

He added, however: “We were proud that during 2022, we executed additional physical renewable power purchases in Texas from a new solar project, which will deliver approximately 76,000 MWh of additional renewable solar power per year, expected to start delivery in 2024.”
