North Texas is getting another huge data center — this one south of Dallas.

Addison-based Compass Datacenters LLC bought 225 acres on Houston School Road near Interstate 35E in Red Oak for a new campus.

Construction has already started on the project, with the first phase scheduled for completion in the middle of this year.

That seems a bit far south for a data center site.

Remember that Google is also building a $600M data center in neighboring Midlothian.

Already forgot about that. I guess it's the data/capacity of a data center, and not necessarily the location.

Red Oak is much closer to Dallas than Frisco...

If you mean downtown Dallas, then yes, but Dallas is a big sprawly city and the northern border is only about 6 miles from Frisco.

Red Oak to downtown is 18 miles vs 23 miles downtown Dallas to Frisco.
