PowerHouse Data Centers Acquires Land for Massive Data Center Campus in Irving

Harrison Street and PowerHouse Data Centers have announced the acquisition of 50 acres in Irving-Las Colinas, a prominent community in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. This acquisition marks the site for PowerHouse Irving, a massive data center campus spanning nearly one million square feet and delivering 200 MW of power upon completion.

The location, strategically chosen in Irving-Las Colinas, aligns with PowerHouse's expansion plans into key markets. It joins the ranks of PowerHouse Reno in Nevada and PowerHouse 95 in Spotsylvania County, Virginia, as the third multi-phased data center development announced this year. The Irving campus will consist of three powered shell data centers, totaling over 946,000 square feet and offering a power load of 67 MW per building.

Construction is slated to commence in early 2025, with the first powered shell anticipated for delivery by late 2025. "I want to welcome PowerHouse and its partners to Irving. As we continue to demonstrate, our city is a prime destination for vital data infrastructure projects," said Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer. "Our skilled workforce, transportation links, central location, and ease of doing business attract companies ready to build the base for future high technology applications."

"Location, speed to market, and power performance are critical to everything we do. Irving-Las Colinas has developed into a hugely important connectivity hub with major financial influence, and is an integral part of the Dallas market which has the fourth-largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the nation and the 20th largest economy in the world," said PowerHouse CEO & Founder Doug Fleit. "We are excited to deliver the first of several planned projects to serve one of the most dynamic data center markets in the world —and provide first-rate connectivity solutions for hyperscale customers."

Irving-Las Colinas' position as the "Headquarters of Headquarters" in Texas, coupled with its exceptional transportation links and access to skilled workers, underscores its appeal as an ideal location for data center developments.

"Dallas is an established data center market that is seeing significant growth and serves as a major hyperscale compute cluster for the central region," said Michael Hochanadel, Managing Director & Head of Digital at Harrison Street. "We are leveraging our valued partnership with PowerHouse to deliver much-needed capacity to this high growth area, meeting escalating demand-driven cloud, AI, and other use cases."

"On behalf of our member-investors and board of directors, we are excited to welcome PowerHouse home to our community," said Beth A. Bowman, President & CEO of the Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce and Irving Economic Development Partnership. "CBRE recently confirmed Dallas-Fort Worth as the second largest market for data centers in the U.S. This is no surprise, as Irving continues to attract world-class data infrastructure projects, the backbone of the digital economy. Our unmatched local and global connectivity, central geographic location, quality of life, and pro-business mindset offer data center companies the opportunity to grow their presence right here in Irving-Las Colinas."

The development of PowerHouse Irving represents a significant milestone in Powerhouse's strategic expansion plans across key data center markets, particularly in North Texas, which boasts a thriving tech sector and serves as a vital hub for advanced technology workers.
