DC Blox Pursuing Second Major Atlanta Data Center Campus


A major data center player is doubling down on its presence in Metro Atlanta.

DC Blox plans to build a 750K SF, 216-megawatt data center campus in Conyers, it announced Tuesday. The move comes weeks after the Atlanta-based data center operator, which targets large users, announced plans to develop a $1.2B, 750K SF, two-story data center with 180 MW of capacity for an unnamed customer in Douglasville, 45 miles to the west of the 72-acre Conyers site.

As with Douglasville, DC Blox is building the first phase of Conyers for an unnamed “anchor hyperscale client,” but with 160K SF that will be marketed to other users, the company said in a release. The project, which will total two buildings and a substation, is expected to deliver in the fourth quarter of 2025.

DC Blox is the latest data center operator to expand in the Metro Atlanta area, which is experiencing a renaissance in the growth of the industry and is pushing to become a Tier 1 market for data center providers, Data Center Frontier reported

DataBank, T5 Data Centers, Vantage Data Centers, Edged Energy and EdgeConneX have also announced plans this year for new data centers throughout Metro Atlanta.

Growth in Atlanta has been aided by a slowdown in Northern Virginia, the preeminent data center hub in North America, which is experiencing power constraints and restrictions on new data centers. Atlanta is also benefiting from cheaper power and an abundance of undeveloped land, attractive especially to hyperscale operators, according to Data Center Frontier.

The metro is already home to 2.8M SF of data centers providing 390 MW. Operators were underway on 1M SF and 152 MW as of the third quarter and had a pipeline of an additional 2.6M SF and 571 MW planned for the region, according to a JLL data center report.

DC Blox’s Conyers facility will also be part of the firm’s 500-mile dark fiber route that will connect communication hubs in Atlanta, Augusta and the cable landing station in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The path is expected to finish later this year, according to a news release.
