$548M data center coming to Pflugerville

Skybox Datacenters, a national data center development firm, is building a 141,000-square-foot data center in Pflugerville that will invest $548 million into the city.

An economic development performance agreement between the Pflugerville Community Development Corp. and Skybox was approved by Pflugerville City Council on Tuesday for the northeast corner of New Meister Lane and Meister Lane; construction is expected to begin by the end of the year.

Skybox, which is headquartered in Dallas, will receive an expansion grant of up to $1.58 million over a 10-year period as part of the agreement. The grant will be awarded if the data firm completes the facility by Jan. 1, 2024, secures at least one tenant and certify a minimum investment of $50 million.

“Skybox is excited to launch our newest data center facility in Pflugerville, which offers innovative, sustainable and adaptable turn-key and powered shell solutions that will benefit our enterprise and hyperscale customers in Austin and across the country,” Skybox CEO Rob Morris said.
