T5 Data Centers says it has now leased three of the four data centers on its T5@Dallas campus, and has commenced the interior build-out of the 70,000 square-foot final building of the development. T5 has now leased 15 megawatts of wholesale space at the Dallas development, which has room for future expansion. The company lined up $113 million in financing last year to funds its buildout of the remainder of the first phase.
The T5@Dallas facility currently houses four independent data centers, each offering between 4.5 megawatts and 6 megawatts of power capacity. There is no shared infrastructure between the four data centers, so clients have complete control of their data environment, including dedicated utility feeds, electrical and mechanical plants for each data center.
“Today’s high density data center users are searching for robust and secure environments within purpose built facilities,” said Martin Peck, General Manager of T5′s Dallas operation. “Our T5@Dallas data center is a ‘battleship’ of a facility and given our Plano Legacy location, we believe we have the best data center facility in the best location for business in Texas.”
T5@Dallas is a wholesale data center facility within a 315,000 square foot building on a 20-acre site located in Legacy Business Park in Plano. Texas4 is the remaining data center, and will feature 40,000 square feet of raised floor space and 4.5 MW of critical power available, expandable to 6.0 MW. The entire T5@Dallas facility is LEED-Silver Certified and built to withstand winds up to 221 miles per hour. It has dual primary power feeds connected to two separate substations, and is concurrently maintainable (mechanically and electrically) and fault tolerant (electrically).
T5 now has seven T5 data centers across the United States. Earlier this year it entered the greater New York market, teaming with Lincoln Rackhouse to develop a property in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y. for data center use. T5 also has facilities in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Charlotte with new projects under development in Oregon and Colorado.
