The company intends to break ground on a new two-story, 12MW facility to be developed on a recently acquired 6-acre land parcel adjacent to the company’s existing facility in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Stack Infrastructure has announced plans for the expansion of its data centre campus in Atlanta, bringing the company’s total critical capacity in the market to 20MW.

Stack’s land acquisition in Atlanta is the latest of six expansion projects announced over the last twelve months that will collectively add more than 400MW of critical capacity to Stack’s offering.

“Stack’s expansion strategy continues to be driven by the needs of our clients and this is another example of our commitment to establishing strong footholds with room for growth and campus economics in their most important markets,” said Matt VanderZanden, Chief Strategy Officer of Stack.

“Stack is experiencing outsized demand in Atlanta based on the favourable business climate, low overall operating costs, and robust infrastructure. The expansion of our campus will enable us to help our clients further anchor their presence in the Southeast.”

In January 2020, the company unveiled its plans for a 125-acre hyperscale data centre campus in Prince William County, Virginia in partnership with the Peterson Companies.

In the same month, Stack revealed its plans for a 32MW data centre on its campus in San Jose, California.

“The City of Alpharetta is excited about this new investment Stack Infrastructure is making to expand their footprint in our community,” said Jim Galvin, Mayor of the City of Alpharetta.

“Critical infrastructure is more important than ever before in today’s business climate so we look forward to working with Stack as they adapt and compete in a rapidly changing marketplace.”

Last year, the company announced its expansion into a new market, New Albany, Ohio, via the acquisition of a purpose-built data centre.

Stack’s New Albany campus includes development land that has the potential to add an additional 32MW of capacity.
