Amazon has bought nine acres of land in the Dallas Fort-Worth area of Texas.

Dallas News reports that per county records, Amazon Data Services recently acquired a nine-acre vacant tract off Hampton Road south of Interstate 20 in DeSoto, south of Dallas.

The property was reportedly acquired from a California investor that that had held the land for more than eight years. The company told DN it wouldn't comment on its plans for the land.

AWS doesn’t currently have a cloud region in Texas. In July 2021 the company launched a Local Zone edge facility in Dallas; It also has a Wavelength Zone in a Verizon facility in the city.

AWS is also looking to expand into the Texan city of San Antonio; the company last year filed plans to build three data centers in San Antonio under the project name ‘Blackfish’ that were due for completion at the end of 2021.

In December Google announced plans for a new GCP cloud region in Dallas. Microsoft opened its South Central US Azure cloud region in Texas in 2008; the company has a number of data centers in and around San Antonio and has filed applications to build four more.

As reported by DCD this week, Amazon recently acquired a seven-acre plot in Santa Clara, California for more than $50 million adjacent to an existing facility it is currently developing.
