Data Center Build Is Latest for Dallas-Fort Worth Market

Kansas-based QTS Realty Trust will build a more than 210,000-square-foot, two-story data center in Irving, Texas. Plans are to commence construction in August. The project is just the latest in the area’s robust market for data centers.

(TNS) — More data center space may be on the way in Irving.

QTS Realty Trust, a data center operator based in Kansas, will build a more than 210,000-square-foot data center project, a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation indicates.

The development consists of a two-story phased data center, among other features, with a construction cost of $152 million, according to the filing. HDR Architecture Inc. is listed as the design firm behind the work at 6300 Longhorn Drive in Irving.

The facility, dubbed QTS DFW1-DC6, follows QTS-DFW1-DC5, which is expected to span about 264,000 square feet and was announced late last year.

QTS declined to comment on the project.

The new data center has an anticipated delivery of late 2025, with construction set to commence in August.

QTS expanded to North Texas in 2014 with the purchase of a former Hitachi semiconductor plant that the data center company has since converted into a massive data center campus.

Billions of dollars are expected to flow into the Dallas-Fort Worth data center market in the coming years. The region has a reported development pipeline of more than 2.6 million square feet of data center space, with much of it already spoken for.
