With a team led by location strategy and site development veteran Mike Lebow, Stream goes beyond traditional site selection processes to deliver a holistic location strategy approach to data center deployment that spans due diligence, zoning and land use permitting, utility upgrades and interconnections, energy procurement, and economic development incentive negotiations. The team assesses market conditions, gathers data points from customers, and develops a list of Critical Location Factors. Stream then works with various stakeholders in the region or utility territory to identify a comprehensive list of both on- and off-market properties. These sites are then rigorously vetted using a data-driven approach, ensuring that every customer can trust that it is leveraging the location with the strongest fundamentals. This approach underscores Stream’s dedication to delivering the best data center procurement experiences available in the industry.
