100+ Acres of Chester County to be Transformed Into a 150MW Data Center Hub

fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty (1547), a leading data center operator in North America and Europe, has partnered with Malvern-based real estate developer Green Fig Land Company to secure and develop the 100 acres of Chester County as a hyperscale campus to make way for 2 million square feet of data center usage and 150 MW of available utility power and with additional 140 MW to be available during build out.

The 100+ acre land tract in Chester County, Pennsylvania, is designated for data centers and microwave towers. The East Whiteland Township Board of Supervisors granted GFLC zoning clearance, allowing it to build two data centers totaling around 1,000,000 square feet each on the center parcels. Up to 5,000,000 square feet of data center buildings can be built on adjacent land.

 

 

According to J. Todd Raymond, CEO of 1547, power and space in hyperscale and enterprise data centers are in high demand, and this demand is increasing exponentially. In order to serve as edge deployments in densely populated areas, 1547 is concentrated on identifying and growing critical markets close to the network.

Meanwhile, for Charles Lyddane, Managing Partner of GFLC, they have an unbeatable site with 150 MW of electricity and 140 MW more that will be added during the build out, plenty of free cooling, and no tornadoes or floods. Additionally, GFLC is constructing a dedicated, environmentally friendly power generating facility on the property that would sell electricity to the project behind the meter.

As it moves forward with its plans to produce the ultimate build-to-suit data center design to create a hyperconnected campus, 1547 Realty will be engaging with existing customers to obtain insights.

The new zoning and tax relief programs established in June 2021, which apply to all new construction and development projects, provide 1547 and GFLC’s clients, partners, and prospects with a rare opportunity to develop. The new sales tax exemption on data center equipment will result in substantial cost reductions for all new data center and hyperscale customers.
