GreenSquareDC’s DA for AUD$1B Sustainable Data Center has been Approved

Members of the Metro Inner-South Joint Development Assessment panel today approved GreenSquareDC’s Development Application (DA) for a new $1.1 billion 96MW data center in Perth, Australia.

The project is planned on about 38,000 sq m of property in Belmont, which is conveniently located between the airport and the central business district. More than 68,000 sq m of gross floor area will be provided by the staged development across 4 levels. The first stage of construction is scheduled to start in 2023 and is expected to be finished by mid-2024.

The planned sustainable data center, is considered to be the largest in Western Australia and is intended to address the rising need for digital infrastructure that may assist users in meeting their carbon reduction goals.

 

The Project’s Benefits

The project’s total development costs, including the goods and services tax, are $968.4 million for local components and $1.1 billion for all components. It also brings 2,932 total full time equivalent construction job years supported both directly and indirectly, and adds $635.5 million in value to the Western Australian economy over the course of construction.

Moreover, the continuous and quantifiable benefits include the support of 180 ongoing jobs annually (directly and indirectly), as well as the $36.2 million in value generated to the WA economy annually as a result of site activities.

The project also target 1.1 power usage effectiveness (PUE), which is lower than the average PUE of 1.5 for state-of-the-art data centers and 2.5 for average data centers, according to the Dept. of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER); and 144,164 cars’ worth of emissions are saved annually compared to average data centers.
