Skybox, Prologis To Break Ground on Pflugerville Project

Officials will soon break ground on a $63 million project in Pflugerville, Texas, according to a Texas Department of Regulation filing.

The Oct. 19 report states that Skybox Datacenters and Prologis plan to construct a 148,500-square-foot facility in Travis County, beginning Dec. 1. A privately funded project, the proposal includes a two-story office and a one-story data center, the report stated.

Amy Madison, Pflugerville Community Development Corporation Executive Director, said the initial agreement was announced in March 2022. The first building is “off to the races” and they are working on the second now, she said, which will significantly increase what they hope to see in investments in the community.

Between the two facilities — which will house Skybox, Prologis, and a tenant — Madison said they anticipate “close to 45 employees” with an average wage of $100,000.

Pflugerville City Council approved an economic development performance agreement for the project in March 2022. The agreement states that the project would result in $548 million in capital expenditures, including new construction and personal property in Pflugerville.
