Phoenix, Arizona, is to act as the new data center campus for NTT. The 102-acre campus will eventually house seven data centers, all built to LEED standards.

NTT, a world-leading global technology services provider, has announced that its Global Data Centers Americas division is building a new data center campus in Phoenix, Arizona, as a strategic addition to a rapidly expanding portfolio.

With recently opened campuses in Chicago, Hillsboro and Santa Clara, the new Phoenix campus, slated to open in early 2022, will be the fourth US market NTT has launched in since February 2021, growing its footprint from three to seven campuses.

Masaaki Moribayashi, President and Board Director, NTT, said: “We are pleased to take this next step in our US expansion plans with a new Phoenix campus. We’re continuing to show all of our clients who would like to accelerate their business growth through Digital Transformation that we’re committed to growing our global portfolio to better serve them and their business goals.”

Located in Mesa, Arizona, the 102-acre campus will have seven data centers offering a total of 240 megawatts (MW) of critical IT load and 1.5 million sq ft of space, along with an on-site dedicated substation. The first data center will offer 36MW across six 6MW vaults and 126,000 sq ft of data floor space, suitable for deployments of all sizes.

The Phoenix data center market’s growth makes it one of the most dynamic in the country, and it’s poised for even more growth in the coming years.

Doug Adams, CEO for the Global Data Centers Americas division, NTT, said: “The number of clients and major providers currently in the region, or set to be there soon, speaks to the fact that Phoenix has become a real data center destination. We want to have a presence in the markets that make the most sense for our clients – Phoenix stood out as one of those markets and the city of Mesa, in particular, was the perfect fit.”

Mesa is attracting data center providers and high-tech manufacturers from all over the world with more than 1,000 acres of shovel-ready property, a streamlined entitlement process and competitive Foreign Trade Zone.

“Mesa is becoming one of the nation’s premier strategic hubs for companies like NTT, thanks to our affordable power and robust fiber network,” added John Giles, Mesa’s Mayor, “NTT has made an excellent decision in selecting our Elliot Road Tech corridor as the home for their new data center campus.”

NTT’s presence in the region will support the growing data center market, which is bringing jobs and economic benefits to Arizona.

The Phoenix campus will be built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified specifications for Core and Shell, signaling NTT controls the design and construction of the entire mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection system. This design will conserve energy and reduce water usage at each of the data centers. LEED is the most widely used green building rating system and building to these standards highlights NTT’s commitment to design and develop efficient data centers.
