SAN ANTONIO — The Dallas-based data center development arm of Stream Realty Partners has broken ground on a 135-acre hyperscale campus in San Antonio. The site is located near the junction of West Military Drive and Loop 1604 on the city’s west side and can support the development of up to five buildings totaling more than 1.5 million square feet. At full build-out, the facility will have a 200-megawatt capacity. Construction of the first 300,000-square-foot building is underway and is expected to be available for occupancy in the second quarter of next year. Multiple tenants that have requested anonymity have already committed to the project.

By Charlie Adams and Walker Adams of NAI Brannen Goddard Industrial real estate in Atlanta is in limbo as of the second quarter of 2024. Certain submarkets in Atlanta have been overbuilt and tenant demand with historically active users (third-party logistics, wholesale, e-commerce, etc.) has decreased in comparison to what was seen over the last four years. As a result of the space grab during COVID-19, many logistics tenants are sitting on excess inventory within their buildings. Consumer demand has cooled, increased interest rates have dampened the economy as a whole and rents have risen 14.5 percent year-over-year, according to CBRE’s most recent report. The impact of these headwinds for traditional industrial (warehouse and distribution) real estate is positive. Developers haven’t had the fundamentals allowing overbuilding to a point of hyper-supply. Industrial construction starts have been few and far between over the past 12 months, and we believe this lack of new supply will keep Atlanta’s fundamentals healthy through this limbo we’re currently experiencing. With 4 million square feet of net absorption in first-quarter 2024 and 15.9 million square feet under construction, we should see 2025 vacancy in line with current vacancy, assuming absorption continues at a similar pace. Therefore, …

The tech giant plans to expand its national cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) infrastructure capacity. The project is expected to bring 2,300 unionized construction jobs to the area by 2025, as well as to provide long-term employment opportunities over the next several years.

Ryan Goeller Data Center Due Diligence

The data center market remains a powerhouse of growth and demand in the commercial real estate world. REBusinessOnline sat down with Ryan Goeller, a principal at NAI KLNB commercial real estate services in Virginia, to discuss the various factors impacting this dynamic asset class. REBusinessOnline: Briefly, a data center is a dedicated building housing computer servers and storage systems, constantly processing and managing data for various applications. What is the current state of the data center market? Goeller: Extremely active, with very high demand. Development pipelines are at full power and are strained in certain markets. Leasing demand is through the roof. REBusinessOnline: What types of tenants use these data centers, and what are their space needs? Goeller: The majority of the time, the need for space is so insatiable that entire buildings are leased to single users, especially when it comes to large hyperscale computing projects. However, there are still colocation providers housing smaller tenants in certain buildings. A lot of the activity happening in Northern Virginia is hyperscale activity. These are large tech companies coming in and building 2-million-square-foot campuses that they’re fully occupying themselves. In these instances, the tenants aren’t likely to move once they occupy a space; …
