Compass has filed to build a new 250,000 sq ft (23,225 sqm) data center in Red Oak, Texas.

First reported by BizJournal via a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, the company is planning a 251,815 sq ft data center in Red Oak, close to its existing campus.

The $100 million project, to be located to the south of Dallas in Ellis County, is known as Roadrunner Building 2. Although the filing was only registered this week, it says construction was set to start in late December 2021 and is set complete by late December 2022.

The news follows a recent Compass filing with the state of Texas for a renovation project known as Vallies ELT-1 at 441 N. Austin Blvd. This new filing is seemingly on the same site, located at 481 Austin Blvd.

Compass currently operates two sites in Texas. One in Allen in the Plano area of North Dallas, and another in Red Oak on Houston School Road.

The company acquired some 225 acres of land in 2020 to build out up to 350MW of data centers at the first Red Oak site. The campus, located at 300 Houston School Road and less than a mile away from Austin Blvd, has one 1 million sq ft building completed with another 250,000 sq ft facility in development and due for completion by the end of the year.
