Hillsboro offers a business-friendly environment, affordable power and renewable energy options, diverse metro and long-haul connectivity to major cities and tech hubs such as Los Angeles, Seattle, and Silicon Valley, as well as proximity to international subsea cable networks that reduce latency between the U.S. and high-growth markets in the Asia-Pacific region. Oregon’s Enterprise Zone program offers property tax abatement to data centers for up to five years that bring new facilities, equipment, and employment to the region.
Master-planned for two new buildings, the initial data center at Aligned’s Hillsboro campus is expected to offer 72 MW of critical capacity. The second building is currently planned for 36 MW. The campus has access to abundant power, with 120 MW of utility capacity and utility rates at a fraction of the cost per kWh of comparable West Coast data center markets, lowering customers’ total cost of ownership.
