“An exciting update as we recently broke ground on our new campus in Hillsboro, Oregon! The campus, which is master-planned for two new buildings, marks our entry into the Pacific Northwest,” the company said on LinkedIn last week. We look forward to supporting hyperscale and large enterprise demand in this growing market.”

Aligned first announced plans for a 27-acre, 108MW Oregon campus in January 2023.

Located at NE 30th Ave. & NE Evergreen Rd, the initial data center (known as PDX-01) at Aligned’s Hillsboro campus is expected to offer 72MW of critical capacity. The second building (PDX-02) is currently planned for 36MW. Timelines for development were not shared.

According to the company's website, PDX-01 will feature 12 6MW data halls across 27 acres. The site will offer 100 percent renewable options via Portland General Electric, which owns seven hydroelectric plants, two wind farms, and seven thermal plants.

Aligned currently operates campuses in Chicago, Illinois; Dallas, Texas; Phoenix, Arizona; Salt Lake City, Utah; and Northern Virginia. The company has further sites in development in Maryland. Ohio, Illinois, and Virginia.

The last 12 months have seen the Mubadala and Macquarie-owned company acquire Latin American operator Odata and invest in Canada’s QScale.
