T5 Data Centers, a provider of mission-critical development, facilities management and construction services, announced the purchase of a 164,000-square-foot data center shell in Brennan Investment Group’s Elk Grove Technology Park in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. The facility will provide 103,000 square feet of white space and 15.4 critical megawatts of power capacity.
“We’re excited to grow in the Chicago data center market where we continue to have tremendous success,” said Pete Marin, T5 Data Centers CEO. “Elk Grove Village has become a focal point for Chicago data center activity with outstanding village support, reliable low-cost power and robust network infrastructure, making it an ideal location for both enterprise and hyperscale cloud companies in need of additional capacity.”
The new space by T5 Data Centers is purposefully designed to serve enterprise and hyperscale cloud computing customers, a fitting addition to Elk Grove Technology Park, which caters to technology-driven tenants with unique tax exemptions following the state’s recent passing of a $45 billion capital bill providing benefits to data center construction projects.
The nation’s largest industrial park, Elk Grove Technology Park offers 1.2 million square feet of premium leasing and build-to-suit opportunities across 85 contiguous acres in the O’Hare marketplace. Located at 955 E. Higgins Road, the $1 billion technology-forward business park is designed to accommodate digital manufacturing, robotics and data center companies. The park counts German aerospace manufacturer Broetje-Automation among its tenants and has inked a deal with Comcast to bring fiber into the facility.
