CASTROVILLE – Microsoft plans to open two data centers—dubbed “SAT 80″ and “SAT 81″—at 188844 FM 1957, according to filings with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.
Located about ten minutes north of Castroville, the development is projected to cost $230 million.
The company plans to build a 106,000-sf campus with an administrative building and two co-location centers. This type of center usually signifies that the owner is making its space and equipment available for rent.
One of the buildings will be finished out, suggesting there is already a tenant, while the second will be delivered as a shell.
Construction is slated to begin soon. The project is expected to come online in third quarter 2024.
Houston-based Page Southerland Page is the architect.
