Houston's Data Center Market Tops the Charts

Houston Data Center

Only three North American markets were labeled "provider-favorable" in JLL's data center report released this morning; Houston is one of them. (It also topped the firm's list of emerging data center markets.) Research manager Graham Hildebrand (far right, with fellow JLL researchers Margaret Martin, Lance Collett, and Chris Burns) says users have the power in most cities, as construction has outpaced demand across the continent. Although that's not true here, JLL does predict the pendulum will swing toward Houston data center users in Q1 of next year. (Ironically, the rest of the country has cut down on its pipeline and is predicted to become provider-favorable late next year.)
