AWS plans to build at least four more data centers in Boardman, in Oregon’s Morrow County.
Local news site Oregon Live was the first one to report Amazon Web Services’ plans to expand its presence in the region with the addition of four to five data centers.
AWS has filed documents with Morrow County in which it was found that the company is planning to build a 127-acre data center campus on the west side of Bombing Range Road.
Meanwhile, Yost Grube Hall Architecture will be developing the data center campus, security building, and water treatment building.
The company is looking forward to constructing four single-story data center buildings while each of the data center buildings measures about 215,461 sq ft. The data center site would further be comprised of a water industrial treatment building, water storage tanks, a security building, and a 14,000 sq ft (1,300 sqm) ‘data storage building.’
AWS’ filling further states that phase one of the data center site construction would likely see just one data center and ancillary buildings constructed.
Back in 2011, Amazon built its first data center in Boardman, Oregon, and from around 2017 it started expanding in Hermiston. AWS has at least seven data centers in the Oregon region.
