CyrusOne CONE , a high-growth real estate investment trust (REIT) specializing in highly reliable enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data center properties, announced today plans for a new state-of-the-art data center campus in Allen, Texas, north of Dallas.

The new three phase project will start construction in October.

The first data center will be approximately 340,000 square feet, bringing CyrusOne’s total footprint in Texas to over 1.7 million square feet. After completion, CONE ’s data centers will offer more than 100 megawatts of available power.

“The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has always been a strong market for CyrusOne, and we continue to see growing demand from customers to scale with us. Allen is a business-friendly community, and its proximity to Dallas makes it an ideal site for our new state-of-the-art data center campus,” said John Gould, executive vice president, global sales, CyrusOne.

The new facilities will have access to a number of cloud providers and have direct access to one of the largest fiber hubs in the United States.

Additionally, the new data centers will be linked to the CyrusOne National Internet Exchange (National IX), which delivers interconnection between other CyrusOne locations across the country, including the other CyrusOne hubs in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.

“It’s great to welcome this Texas-based leader and the national companies they serve to Allen,” said Allen Mayor Stephen Terrell.

He added, “CyrusOne makes the perfect neighbor as their investment in our community strengthens our tax base, which benefits our schools and services. Additionally, the new data center has few needs for city services and will have minimal impact on our infrastructure, thanks to CyrusOne’s use of environmentally-friendly waterless cooling technology.”

CONE  already operates 40 data center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia.
