CyrusOne is looking to retrofit a building in Richardson, Texas, for a new data center.

The data center operator filed with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) for a "data center up-fit of an existing building" with an estimated cost of $79.8m.

According to the filing, there will be no floorspace added to the 125,000 sq ft (11,613 sqm) facility located at 1510 E Lookout Drive.

The building, which will become CyrusOne's DFW6 data center "phase 1" is described as a single-story building with a mezzanine in the front of house area which will be used for office space.

The design firm associated with the project is JHET Architects, also based in Texas. Work on the project is hoped to start as soon as June 15, with a completion date of April 15, 2025.

The existing building at 1510 E Lookout Drive seems to be relatively new, and was built by State Farm Insurance and Dallas developer KDC as a "major data center" in Richardson's Telecom Corridor. An application to put up the building was submitted by KDC in 2018.

According to CyrusOne's website, the company currently has eight data centers in operation in Texas: two in Austin, three in the Dallas Fort Worth area, and three in San Antonio. In October 2023, the company filed for a fourth in Dallas - DFW4 - and another in San Antonio in November 2023.

The company previously had four data centers in Houston, Texas, but sold them to DataBank in 2022.

Other operators in the Dallas/Fort Worth area include PowerHouse Data Centers, Skybox Datacenters, and Prime Data Centers.

Earlier this year, Stack announced plans for a 220MW data center campus in Dallas.
