Core Scientific has broken ground on the next phase of its cryptocurrency data center near Denton Municipal Electric’s Jim Christal Substation.

Three data halls and one technology building totaling 140,400 square feet are under construction on a portion of the crypto mining company’s leased 31 acres, according to a commercial building application submitted to Denton’s Department of Development Services. Records of building permits issued in March show the site would also include a guard station.
