Compass Datacenters will build 225-acre Goodyear campus

Goodyear will soon be home to two new data centers. Compass Datacenters has chosen to build its campus on 225 acres of land at the northwest corner of Bullard Avenue and Yuma Road, with future phases to include six additional data centers. The Goodyear City Council unanimously approved an agreement at Monday night’s meeting.

The first phase, delivering a combined 72 MW of IT load, is projected to be completed by fourth quarter 2019. At full build-out, the eight data centers will be over 1.8 million square feet, equivalent to 31 football fields and capable of 350 MW. In addition, the project will improve power infrastructure which benefits the city in the long term.

“Compass Datacenters is a world-class company and a magnificent addition to our growing technology base,” said Mayor Georgia Lord. “The city and Compass are working together in an effort to provide our community with high-end jobs and high-tech solutions. Goodyear is quickly becoming a dynamic location for tech companies and knowledge workers. We are excited to have Compass as a valued partner in this red hot market.”
