New Downtown Chicago Data Center Development
Chicago, Illinois, January, 2010 – Digital Capital Partners, LLC (DCP) announced the development of a new state-of-the-art wholesale data center in downtown Chicago located at 725 South Wells near other major Chicago data centers. DCP has retained MDI Access, a Data Center Design/Build firm, to further develop the Wells Street property into eight custom built data center spaces for future tenants seeking capacities of 400kW to 750kW deployments, resulting in densities of 100 to 150 watts per sq ft.
The 55,000 square foot eight-story building at 725 South Wells sits on the fiber-rich “F” ring and has approximately 10 carriers entering the facility via three diverse fiber entrances. Each tenant will have access to three separate fiber risers. Construction of a new 4 MW diverse path Com Ed service is underway with scheduled completion for October 2010. Construction is also underway for the building’s second full floor tenant.
DCP plans to market the facility to content companies, managed service providers, collocation providers, enterprise users, and financial institutions that are seeking high quality custom-built space.
DCP is owned by Anderson Pacific Corporation, a Chicago private equity firm; Fiberlink, LLC, a regional dark fiber provider; a consortium of independent Midwest telephone companies; and individuals specializing in the telecommunications and data center industry.
