DALLAS - Lincoln Property Co. and T5 DataCenters are buying Cabana Motor Hotel — an old hotel northwest of downtown Dallas on Stemmons Fwy. — and plan to replace the building with a six-story data center complex.
Dallas County earlier this year agreed to sell the 52-year-old hotel — recently used as a detention center — to Lincoln Property for $8.7 million.
Lincoln Rackhouse, the data center subsidiary of the Dallas-based real estate developer, is already hunting business for the more than 300,000-sf data center it plans to build on the site at 899 N. Stemmons.
The planned data center would be one of the largest in the downtown Dallas area and would handle a growing need for Internet, telecommunications and data transfer traffic.
T5 and Lincoln plan to have the building open in early 2017, according to marketing materials for the project.
