STACK INFRASTRUCTURE: Stack Plans to Setting up Two San Jose Data Centers

Apr 26, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

Stack has applied for approval to expand its San Jose, California data center campus. This week, the San Jose City planning commission will consider Stack's request to construct two data centers at 2400 Ringwood Avenue and 1880 Fortune Drive in Santa Clara County, as first reported by SF Yimby. The corporation requests that the approximately 9.78-acre site be rezoned from IP Industrial Park to TEC(PD) Planned Development. Stack plans to tear down two existing buildings totaling nearly 135,000 square feet and build two four-story data centers – SVY05 and SVY 06 – totaling nearly 522,200 square feet (48,515 square meters) and a four-story manufacturing structure totaling approximately 136,575 square feet.

In addition, the corporation intends to install a 100 MW substation from Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E). The site would have 39 diesel-powered standby generators, including 36 3MW and three 1MW units. The zoning commission is scheduled to review the application today (April 26), and the city staff has recommended approval. Stack purchased the two adjacent parcels for a total of $40 million in 2021. The SVY01 campus of the enterprise is adjacent and consists of two buildings. Initial publicized in 2020 Building B was constructed circa 2021. On the former Memorex headquarters site, Stack is constructing a second Silicon Valley campus. EdgeConneX and Skybox are also constructing facilities at the former Memorex location.

In March 2023, the company acquired $250 million in securitized notes and stated it would use the funds to expand its footprint. In spite of the high demand for data center capacity in the Silicon Valley region, companies continue to struggle with space and power constraints.
