DFW’s data centers see healthy 2017 absorption across a diverse range of companies

  • ​One of DFW’s strengths and a key to its stable growth is its diverse economy. 

  • Unlike some markets around the US where a single sector drives demand, like Northern Virginia’s hub for cloud-based services, DFW’s data center demand arises from a diverse range of companies across a variety of industries.

  • This demand diversity is being driven by our existing and growing base of blue chip – Fortune 1,000 companies.  Many of the HQs that have come to or recently expanded in DFW have major data center requirements, such as Toyota, State Farm, and Charles Schwab. 

  • We expect this trend to continue as companies establish beachheads in DFW, which will further reinforce DFW as one of the top US data center hubs.

  • Development to meet this demand is underway by leaders, like Cyrus One, with a campus in Allen, Compass, and OTS.  Currently, 163,000 square feet (22 MW) is under construction, with 613,000 square feet (89 MW) planned.​​
