First reported by BizJournal, Tract is said to be plotting a $14 billion master-planned data center complex across 1,000 acres in the Buckeye area of Maricopa County.

Known as Project Range, the development will span nearly 30 buildings totaling 5.6 million square feet on land north and south of Yuma Road between Jackrabbit Trail and Perryville Road. Buildings will range from 149,000 square feet to 260,000 square feet each.

Work on the project is set to start in 2025 and continue over the next 15 to 18 years. Plans for the project were first submitted last year, according to BizJournal, citing project documents submitted to Maricopa County.

Tract is led by Grant van Rooyen, president of the van Rooyen Group and founder of US data center firm Cologix. Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners acquired a majority stake in the company in 2017.

News of the company surfaced in 2022 – at the time, it had reportedly identified 40,000 acres of potential investment sites. As well as Reno, Nevada, Tract has announced plans for a 668-acre campus in Eagle Mountain, Utah, and a 46-building data center campus outside Richmond, Virginia, is also in the works.

Phoenix is a major data center hub, with a number of operators clustered around the Mesa area of Maricopa County.
