Stack Infrastructure (Stack), will be more than doubling its capacity with a new facility on a six-acre plot of land adjacent to its current data center campus near Atlanta, US.

The company bought the parcel of land, for an undisclosed sum, upon which it hopes to build a 12MW facility which will more than double the campus’s capacity. Currently, the company operates one data center on the campus in Alpharetta, a city and suburban district of Atlanta, Georgia.

Anchoring its presence

Matt VanderZanden, chief strategy officer of Stack, said: "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.

"Stack is experiencing outsized demand in Atlanta based on the favorable 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.”

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

“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.”

Stack’s land acquisition in Atlanta is the latest of six expansion projects announced over the last twelve months.

In January, Stack announced plans for a 125-acre hyperscale data center campus in Prince William County, Virginia, and a 32MW data center on its campus in San Jose, California.

In October 2019, Stack announced it was expanding into New Albany, Ohio, by building a Tier III data center.

September 2019 saw Stack make plans for an 80MW expansion of its Portland data center campus and June 2019 saw plans made for a 20MW data center adjacent to its existing facility in Chicago.

All in all, the new projects will add more than 400MW of critical capacity.
