A year after its third data center went online in Irving, QTS Realty Trust plans to build its fourth facility at the campus later this year.

According to a Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing, the Kansas-based company is adding a two-story, 210,755-square-foot “partially built-out core and shell” with a phased data center to include office space, mechanical and electrical equipment, site improvements, and equipment yards. At an estimated construction cost of $152 million, the project is expected to begin in August and carries an anticipated delivery date of November 2025.

QTS of Overland Park already operates three data centers at the 56-acre Irving campus. Its most recent construction project at the site is a 136,565-square-foot building with modified floors and ceilings and added data halls, The Dallas Express has reported.

Once a semiconductor plant, the Irving campus will eventually encompass about 2 million square feet, making it one of the largest data center campuses in North Texas, The Dallas Morning News previously reported. Dallas-Fort Worth is already one of the country’s fastest-growing markets for data centers, with Google planning to build a $600 million property in Red Oak, according to the newspaper.

Meanwhile, Aligned Data Centers is expected to build a 450,000-square-foot facility in Plano to add to its Dallas-area inventory after the city’s Planning and Zoning commissioners approved a request from the company for a specific use permit for an electrical substation near the 44-acre site.

The Dallas Express reported the East Plano location would be the Plano-based company’s third data center in the area. The other two are on a combined 38 acres on Summit Avenue.
