The new data center is expected to offer 30,000 square feet of turnkey-ready capacity initially, with a roadmap to 130,000 square and 32 MW.

Stream Data Centers it has purchased a 208,000-square-foot industrial property set for redevelopment in Chicagoland’s Elk Grove Village, IL, where it plans to put a data center. Construction on the Chicago II data center is scheduled to begin in February 2021, with early occupancy opportunities available in the third quarter of the year.

The new data center is expected to offer 30,000 square feet of turnkey-ready capacity initially, with a roadmap to 130,000 square and 32 MW. It will be located close to Stream Data Centers’ recently completed Chicago I facility at 2080 Lunt Avenue in Elk Grove Village.

“Elk Grove Village understands the unique needs and complexities of developing large scale data center projects,” says Chris Kincaid, Stream’s senior vice president of design and construction. “That knowledge combined with ComEd’s infrastructure and reliable ability to deliver electric utility capacity gives us great confidence in our ability to deliver this large-scale project in 2021.”

Stream Data Centers is a subsidiary of Stream Realty Partners, a commercial real estate investment, development and services company.
