“DataBank in Plano has announced the fourth expansion of its data center in Plano’s Legacy business park.
“This expansion is the fourth and fifth data halls to be added to our DFW3,” Tony Qorri, DataBank’s vice president of construction, said in a prepared statement.
The expansion provides an additional 22,000 square feet of space. In July, the data center operator announced a 12,000-square-foot expansion at the Plano location.”
2021 has been a busy and progressive year for DataBank as it has been expanding all its operations and locations throughout the country according to a Data Center Dynamics article from December 15 which reports,
“DataBank has been busy this year. 2021 has seen the company raise around $1 billion in secure notes across two raises and embark on an upgrade and expansion spree. Since the $750 million March raise, DataBank has announced plans to add more than 100,000 sq ft (9,000 sqm) and 15MW of capacity to its existing locations.
This year the company has announced expansions to existing data centers in Plano, Texas; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; twice in Salt Lake City, Utah; Kansas City, Kansas; and Indianapolis, Indiana.
The company has also been expanding its portfolio with new locations. A new facility in Minneapolis, Minnesota opened last month. It has also acquired a warehouse in Denver to convert into a data center, broken ground on another facility in Utah, and acquired a former Verizon data center in Orangeburg, New York, and announced a new data center in Virginia.”
The location in Plano is one of the 66 data centers and one of the six centers located in North Texas
