DataNovaX Introduces $1 Billion Pioneer Park Build-to-Suit Data Center Campus in North Texas

DataNovaX has begun accepting clients at its new Pioneer Park, the first Build-to-Suit data center campus in Wichita Falls, Texas, a region renowned for its abundance of power and dense data connectivity as well as its high concentration of government, semiconductor, oil & gas, manufacturing and telecom-related industry giants planting roots in the region.

“This area offers a wealth of resources and business incentives that make it an extremely welcoming environment for hyperscalers, data center operators, government, and large enterprises,” said Ahmed Abdelghani, CEO of DataNovaX, an innovative Build-to-Suit data center provider. He cited the region’s strong growth potential, noting ample sustainable power, plentiful dark fiber for connectivity as well as a talented workforce and pro-business tax climate.  

“North Texas is one of most exciting data center growth zones in the country and an excellent alternative to the saturated Dallas Fort Worth market, said Abdelghani. “While the Dallas Fort Worth area’s fiber connectivity is at or near capacity, North Texas’ Wichita Falls offers a world-class data availability zone with multiple metro and long haul fiber pathways and network providers within a 1-mile radius.” 

Likely attributed to its prime location next to Sheppard Air Force Base, Pioneer Park sits atop a rich data availability zone featuring:

  • A multitude of network providers including Zayo, AT&T,  Indian Nations Fiber Optic (INFO), Syntrio, Spectrum, Vexus, Comcell, Consolidated Communications, Crown Castle, Dobson Fiber, Hilliary Communications, MetroNet Fiber, Texas Lone Star Network, Uniti Fiber, Windstream. 
  • Ample dark fiber to support AI, high performance computing (HPC) and data-intensive applications. 
  • Gold standard Cardinal Diversity with 4X fiber routes: North, South, East & West.
  • Carrier neutral provider ecosystem.

“Pioneer Park has the ability to draw utility power from both North and West Texas, enabling low-cost, sustainably-sourced power resources that can scale alongside the organizations it supports. It’s one of the major benefits of this location,” said Abdelghani. 

DataNovaX CEO Ahmed Abdelghani joined JSA for an interview to discuss the development and launch of Pioneer Park.

Pioneer Park’s first phase features 6 MW of power in a 37,000- square-foot facility equipped with N+1 systems redundancies. Phase 1 of the $1 billion investment property will go live in December 2024. Phase II will include a 550,000-square-feet facility with 150 MW of power, perfectly suited for high density AI and HPC applications. The park is located off I-44 Central E. Freeway and Hwy 287 on Airport Drive and adheres to TIER III design and SOC 1 Type II and ISO/IEC 27001 standards.
