The Market

Why Dallas

We invest in your success through speculative development in markets where we see future demand and in locations where TCO can be optimized, risk is low, network connectivity is robust, and sustainability is easily achievable. Garland certainly fits the bill and is fast becoming a prime destination for hyperscalers and enterprises alike.

Power is among the lowest-cost in the country – and reliable
Stream’s Garland data center was not negatively impacted by Winter Storm Uri and the power failures that resulted. That’s not just luck, it’s site selection. In addition to maintaining full utility power, we also maintained price stability.

Tax incentives also help keep TCO low
Data center occupants are fully exempt from state sales and use taxes for up to fifteen years. The exemption applies to electricity consumption and equipment purchases.

Renewable energy options ¬and incentives abound
There are more financial incentives and regulatory policies promoting renewable energy in Texas than any other state except California and Minnesota. Overall, Dallas offers some of the lowest cost carbon offset options, sourced from within the state.

Network connectivity is excellent
Dallas is a top interconnection market for traffic within the U.S. and between the U.S. and Mexico. From Stream’s Garland data center, multiple network service providers and diverse dark fiber paths provide for under 1 ms latency to Dallas’s major carrier hotels and cloud interconnection locations.

The DFW metro area is a great place to do business
Twenty-three Fortune 500 companies are headquartered in the Dallas metro area. A key driver is the ease and relatively low cost of doing business.
