Stream Data Centers: Stream DC files for 200MW campus expansion in Phoenix

Jul 10, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

Stream Data Centers has submitted plans to build a 2 million-square-foot data center campus in the Goodyear neighborhood of Phoenix, Arizona. Last week, the Goodyear Planning and Zoning Commission approved Stream's request to rezone 104 acres on Litchfield Road and Lower Buckeye Road from I-1 (Light Industrial) to I-1 (Light Industrial) with a Planned Area Development (PAD) Overlay.

The county staff advised approval of the zoning application, which will be presented to the City Council in the coming weeks. The PAD must change one development standard to facilitate additional screening for mechanical equipment installed on the roof. As per application papers, the organization was recently given site plan clearance for a multi-phased construction on 104 acres in Maricopa County, comprised of five additional two-story, approximately 400,000-square-foot data center structures.

The new facilities will employ rooftop air-cooled chillers, which require extra checks to comply with Goodyear's building codes. The land was rezoned from agricultural to light industrial in 2006. In 2019, Stream Data Centers took over a 518,000-square-foot derelict industrial building at 2950 S. Litchfield Road and 104 acres of undeveloped land. The facility was formerly used for storage by First Solar Inc. of Tempe. According to the Vizzda property database, the company paid $42 million for the property.

In 2020, Stream opened the campus. The company, a subsidiary of Stream Realty Partners, presently offers a total of 40MW from the first building (known as Phoenix I), but when the entire campus is completed, it will offer 200MW across two million sq ft.
