Ground Broken on State Farm’s Huge Dallas Data Center Build

‘Project Black Flag’ to result in 130,000 square foot data center

Construction crews recently broke ground at the site of a massive future State Farm Insurance data center in Richardson, a Dallas suburb.

Developer KDC and Holder Construction are building the facility, The Dallas Morning News reported. State officials have been referring to it as “Project Black Flag.”

The Dallas data center will be about 130,000 square feet in size, located on a 15-acre property. Dallas firm Corgan Architects designed the one-story building.

State Farm is also building a 1.5 million square foot office campus in the area. First of the four planned buildings on campus is close to completion, the Morning News reported.

Richardson and the surrounding area are a hub of the Dallas data center market.

Digital Realty Trust has a massive data center park in Richardson. Rackspace is one of the major tenants there. Another example is a DataBank data center in town.

CyrusOne has data centers in nearby Carrollton and Lewisville. Cisco has data centers in Richardson and about 15 miles north, in Allen.
