Plans for a major data center at McClellan Park were confirmed Wednesday.
Frank Myers, senior vice president and chief financial officer of McClellan Park, said initial plans call for a 66,000-square-foot center in an existing building.
That building, Myers said, sits on a 9-acre site purchased in last year’s fourth quarter by Sacramento Venture One, a joint undertaking between McClellan Park and California-based Xtream Data Centers.
Myers said plans call for construction of a second data center building of 75,000 to 100,000 square feet on the same parcel.
He noted that SVO owns land for development adjacent to the parcel, “so there is room to expand.”
Myers declined to disclose prospective clients who might use the data center, but added: “A data center campus would bring jobs to the area, increase the (regional tax base) and help draw (technology companies) to the area.”
He did say that SVO expects multiple tenants at the site.
Myers said SVO is hopeful of getting final approval of $1.2 million in tax credits from the Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development, or GO-Biz. That final approval could come as soon as next week. Preliminary GO-Biz approval was based, in part, on 58 jobs at the site over a five-year period.
