Washington, DC (August 31, 2022) – DBT-DATA announced today the purchase of 93 acres in the New Albany International Business Park in New Albany, Ohio. As a leader in the development of mission critical facilities, DBT-DATA intends to construct up to one million square feet of power shell facilities, which are completed buildings equipped with all necessary power and connectivity that can be customized to meet the needs of a single or multiple customers. This will be the company’s first project in the state of Ohio.
Crediting the existing infrastructure in the business park, including 300 megawatt redundant power, triple feed electric capabilities and robust fiber optic networks, DBT-DATA had its eye on a New Albany location for some time.
“The New Albany International Business Park has built a national reputation as a reliable location for mission critical facilities,” said DBT-DATA CEO, David Tolson. “Demand for data center space continues to grow and users appreciate the flexibility that comes with a completed building already prepared to meet their technology needs that can be finished to their exact specifications.”
“The strategic planning and investment in power and internet infrastructure were important factors in our decision to develop in New Albany. The City of New Albany, AEP Ohio and New Albany Company set the stage for the expansion of this sector by investing in the critical elements that support business growth,” concluded Tolson.
“DBT-DATA is a respected and experienced developer and we’re pleased they’ll be delivering this important data center option for prospective tenants of all sizes in the New Albany International Business Park,” said Bill Ebbing, President and CEO of New Albany Company. “Our mission critical cluster in the park continues to grow as existing companies like Meta, AWS and Google expand and new businesses establish operations here.”
The 93+ acre site is bordered by Clover Valley Road, Jug Street and Mink Street.
DBT-DATA is an affiliate of DBT Development Group, LLC, a Washington, D.C. based real estate development company. The company specializes in high quality living and working spaces, including residential, commercial and data center development.
