The campus, which is situated in Hillsboro next to PGE’s Shute Substation, has direct access to a large amount of fiber, benefits from the city’s Enterprise Zone and its policies regarding property tax exemptions, and employs sustainable power procedures with 100% renewable energy being provided across STACK facilities.

In a written statement, Brian Cox, CEO of STACK Americas, said that STACK, one of the first data center builders to settle in Hillsboro, is committed to continuously meeting the need for capacity in the quickly developing area.

In Hillsboro, STACK Infrastructure finished construction of a 24MW, 180,000 square foot facility in January. It was the first structure on STACK’s 84MW campus, which is located in the Portland region, and it expanded the company’s footprint in Hillsboro, where it already had more than 50MW of capacity. It was known as POR03. Additionally, POR01, a 12MW facility, and POR02, a 24MW facility, are owned by STACK nearby.

Market Expansions

The majority of the leasing activity last year was driven by cloud service providers and social media firms, particularly in Hillsboro, Northern Virginia, Atlanta, Phoenix, Chicago, and Dallas, according to CBRE’s North American Data Center Trends H2 2021 report. According to the data, Hillsboro had the highest secondary market absorption totalβ€”6.6MWβ€”in the second half of 2021.

In 2021, the market expanded quickly, and in 2022, there was a significant quantity of preleasingβ€”199.0 MW. Hillsboro, according to CBRE, has a sizable construction pipeline, but the majority of the upcoming supplyβ€”85% of the 234.8MWβ€”has already been reserved.

In 2022, STACK is expanding in markets all over the world. STACK marked its presence in three new markets in Australia, many extensions into the EMEA market with data centers in the Nordics, Italy, and Switzerland, as well as a 36MW campus in Inzai, Japan, in addition to providing the 24MW Hillsboro facility in January.

In the US, STACK declared in January that it would be constructing an 84 MW campus in Northern Virginia, boosting its present and planned capacity in the area to more than 600 MW. In Sterling, Virginia, where the provider would introduce more than 1 million square feet of space in three new buildings, STACK announced it planned to construct three more buildings due to rising client demand. When fully developed, NVAL2 will have a 216MW maximum capacity.

Additionally, STACK is collaborating with Peterson Cos. to construct a 125-acre hyper-scale campus in Manassas, Virginia, with more than 4 million square feet of space and more than 250MW of critical load for large users.
