QTS' 'Project Excalibur' To Span 7M SF In Fayetteville
QTS is revealing more about its massive project in Fayetteville, which it says will be the world's largest multitenant data center campus.
The data center giant plans to develop 6.6M SF in 16 buildings on some 615 acres, according to a development of regional impact application with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. QTS also looks to build 400K SF of office space on the project, which is slated to start construction in 2023 and is expected to all be delivered by 2032, according to the application.
QTS purchased the agricultural site that is bordered by Highway 54, Flat Creek Trail and Tyrone Road in Fayette County — more than 25 miles to the south of Downtown Atlanta — for $153.8M, Datacenter Dynamics reported, citing information from the Fayette County Development Authority. The project is expected to cost in excess of $1B for QTS, which was acquired by Blackstone last year for $10B.
The project comes as Metro Atlanta’s data center market is increasingly constrained as demand for the critical infrastructure increases, but it is seeing a bloom of new projects, including data centers for Microsoft, Switch, Meta, Digital Realty and CyrusOne, according to a recent Cushman & Wakefield report.
