The anticipated 150MW campus, located in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, is expected to house three tri-level facilities. It will be one of the largest data center campuses in the critical Chicago-O’Hare market.

“We enter into the Midwest with the development of new 150MW campus. This project will enable hyperscalers, large enterprises and retail colocation providers to meet the growing capacity demands,” said Jeff Barber, EVP of Sales and Business Development, Prime Data Centers.

Prime’s Partnership-as-a-Service model provides potential customers with flexible options, including build-to-suit, turnkey or powered shell. Prime can structure joint venture models where the tenant actually owns a significant percentage of the facility. This flexibility, coupled with sales tax abatement advantages, has led to significant interest in this project.

In addition to this location, Prime Data Centers has four locations across California and is expanding its global footprint with active projects in the U.S. and Europe.
