Stream Realty Partners Breaks Ground on Second Ready-to-Fit Data Center in San Antonio, Texas
DALLAS, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas-based Stream Realty Partners, L.P. has commenced construction on its second Ready-to-Fit (RTF) Data Center building on a 33-acre site in Westover Hills, the premier corporate office park in San Antonio, Texas. The 150,000 square foot, structurally enhanced, powered shell data center building will have eight-inch thick concrete walls and a 24-inch thick concrete roof system designed to withstand 175 mph winds. The building is expandable to 350,000 square feet (while maintaining 200'+ setbacks) and is pre-approved by the city for all necessary data center improvements.
The Stream RTF Data Center will have two, 10 megawatt utility feeds, expandable to 30 megawatts each. The primary feed will come from the recently announced 200 megawatt Westover Hills substation located immediately adjacent to the site. The second feed will come from a 200 megawatt substation located 1.5 miles from the site. The LEED directed development will provide access to gray (recycled) water and multiple fiber optic providers.
San Antonio has become a hotbed for corporate data center developments over the past 24 months with major data center announcements coming from six major companies. Reasons for San Antonio's explosive data center growth include a safe, central US location, low risk of natural disasters, new reliable infrastructure, excellent connectivity, and inexpensive electricity. At sub $.05 per KWH, San Antonio's electricity costs rank among the lowest of major US cities.
The Stream Ready-to-Fit Data Center is designed and engineered for the large, single tenant enterprise data center user looking for a secure, controlled and independent environment. The development is scheduled for completion in February 2009. Anthony Bolner, Paul Moser and Rob Kennedy with Stream Realty are handling the marketing of the Stream Ready-to-Fit Data Center building.
