MATAWAN, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES – fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty (1547) has partnered with real estate development firm, Green Fig Land Company (GFLC), to acquire a parcel of over 100+ acres of land to develop, build and invest in a data centre project designed with initial capacity for up to 2 million square feet of space and 150 MW of available utility power and with additional 140 MW to be available during build out.
Located in Chester County, Pennsylvania in the USA, the 100+ acre land parcel is zoned for data centres and microwave towers. GFLC has obtained a zoning approval through East Whiteland Townships Board of Supervisors to construct two data centres of approximately 1,000,000 square feet for a total of 2,000,000 square feet on the centre lots. Adjacent property is available for development of up to 5,000,000 square feet of data centre buildings.
“The demand for hyperscale and enterprise data centre space and access to power continues to grow at an exponential rate. 1547 is focused on identifying and developing key markets with proximity to the network to serve as edge deployments in highly populated geographies,” adds J. Todd Raymond, CEO of 1547. “We have seen the success of partnering with local and state governments throughout our portfolio, including our partnership with Rockland County, where our flagship data centre in Orangeburg, New York is located, has attracted Fortune 100 companies and large hyper-scalers, since space and power are immediately available along with the proximity of connectivity to facilities in Manhattan. This saves our customers millions of dollars in tax incentives and creates long-term partnerships that scale as their data centre needs grow.”
Charles Lyddane, Managing Partner of GFLC states, “We at Green Fig have spent three years working with the legislature to enact a bill to eliminate the sales tax on data centre equipment in Pennsylvania. With access to Tier 1 carriers like Arelion, Lumen, and Windstream, PA is the ideal location for an additional data centre cluster sitting between markets like NJ/NY and Ashburn.” He added, “With 150 MW of power and 140 more MW being added during the build out, abundant free cooling, no tornadoes or floods we have an unbeatable site.” GFLC is also working on a dedicated, sustainable power generating facility on site, which would sell power to the project behind the meter.
