Atlanta-based colocation provider DC Blox has completed the purchase of 27.5 acres in Berkeley County, SC, from Santee Cooper, South Carolina’s state-owned electric and water utility, for a new data center campus. This new facility, to be constructed in the Camp Hall commerce park, will be the company’s third commitment in South Carolina. 

The preliminary plan site includes four buildings, covering about 200,000 square feet (18,580 sqm) of space and 45MW of planned power, with build-to-suit options available. The available power from Santee Cooper makes Berkely County one of the state's most attractive locations for data centers. “Camp Hall is proving to be a prime location for industrial development and investment in our county,” Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb commented. 

Jeff Uphues, DC BLOX CEO, said, “Our new Camp Hall location will be an attractive data center location for hyperscalers who have an immediate need for space and power to support AI/ML and other fast-growing applications. In addition, the facility will offer access to high-capacity fiber to service their customers within the region as well as globally.”
