Substation Location Is A No-Brainer For BTS Center

35-acre site
FISCO, TX—Patronus purchased a 35-acre site located just north of Main Street between the Dallas North Tollway and Legacy Drive in July 2014. The company was attracted to the location because of an adjacent 200 megawatt Co-Serve substation. Fast forward to today, Patronus Data Centers and KDC have joined into an agreement to market and develop those 35 acres for build-to-suit data centers.
Ab Atkins, senior vice president-partner, KDC, tells “Our Frisco site is attractive for data centers because it is an excellent corporate address within the pathway of robust commercial growth and it is adjacent to an electrical substation. The short distance between the site and the substation significantly reduces costs and the risk of power interruptions.”
In addition to the superb location and access to power and fiber networks, the high-profile site is situated in the path of growth and can contain up to 500,000 square feet of buildable data center space.  It sits just north of the Dallas Cowboy’s new headquarters and training facility along with KDC-developed projects for Toyota, Fed Ex and Liberty Mutual.
