New data centers to be built in Goodyear technology corridor
PHOENIX — Two new data centers are set to be built in Goodyear’s expanding technology corridor.
Compass Datacenters will build its campus on 225 acres of land at the northwest corner of Bullard Avenue and Yuma Road after the Goodyear city council unanimously approved an agreement on Monday, according to a press release.
The two data centers — the first phase of the project that will eventually land eight data centers — is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2019, the release said.
“Compass Datacenters is a world-class company and a magnificent addition to our growing technology base,” Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord said in the release. “The city and Compass are working together in an effort to provide our community with high-end jobs and high-tech solutions.”
Upon the project’s completion, the eight data centers will be over 1.8 million square feet, equivalent to 31 football fields.
Technology companies Vantage and Stream Data Centers have also announced their intentions to come to Goodyear this year.
“Goodyear is quickly becoming a dynamic location for tech companies and knowledge workers,” Lord said. “We are excited to have Compass as a valued partner in this red hot market.”
