Data center developer DC BLOX has begun building a data center campus in Douglasville, Georgia.
With an expected capital investment of over $1.2 billion, the site is supported by robust tax incentives from the town of Douglasville.
The site will also be connected to DC BLOX’s nearly 500-mile dark fiber route, the first, high-capacity East-to-West fiber path connecting to the major communications hubs in Atlanta, through Augusta and on to the DC BLOX Cable Landing Station in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The dark fiber route is expected to be completed in Q4 2023.
Designed to meet demanding hyperscale requirements, the two-story data center campus will feature twelve data halls, totaling 750,000 square feet of gross space on 55 acres. 180 MW of power has been committed for the campus with initial customer move-in expected Q3 2025.
DC BLOX has partnered with design-builder Evans General Contractors. Other partners include DLB Associates, Corgan, Thomas & Hutton, and Bennett & Pless.
