Plans for the McDowell Road Data Center – on nearly 98 acres at the SWC of 40th Street and McDowell Road – took a step forward last week as the City of Phoenix’s Planning Commission approved the project’s Planned Unit Development request.
Owner Phoenix Retail Co., LLC bought the vacant site in an Arizona State Land Department auction in July. Various news outlets at the time identified the company as a subsidiary of Quality Technology Services, a giant in the data center and cloud computing industry. Both the Arizona Cardinals and the Phoenix Suns had previously considered the space as a potential stadium site.
