Skybox Datacenters, a Dallas based data center developer, has started construction on its facility in Katy, Texas.
The 86,960 sq. ft facility sits on a 20 acre campus. It will reportedly feature 10,000 sq. ft. of private data halls with the capability of expanding to 12 data halls.
Houston One expected to be complete available for occupancy by November, 2014.
NGKF Data Center Consulting Group’s Bryan Loewen was asked to comment on the project in a recent article by Data Center Dynamics. Here is a snippet from the article:
Commercial real estate firm Newmark Grubb Knight Frank’s global data center practice leader, Bryan Loewen said over the past two to three years Houston has become a very dynamic data center market.
“A meaningful contributor to the market has been major oil & gas firms and their need for fast, low-latency access to geoseismic data,” Loewen said.
“Additionally, we expect the requirements for local data center product to only increase as the reliance and dependence on technology increases for all companies in the greater Houston market.”
