Aligned: ORD-03

50 NW Point Boulevard

Operated by:

Aligned is about to build a datacenter campus after acquiring an assemblage of beleaguered office properties near O’Hare International Airport.

  • The company’s plan for the 36-acre site calls for a pair of two-story, 520,000-square-foot data centers to house servers, wires and other equipment.
  • Aligned acquired 50 Northwest Point Boulevard in Elk Grove Village in March from Franklin Street Properties for $29 million in 2023. The five-story, 177,000 sq ft (16,450 sqm) office building, was built around 2000 and sits on 10 acres.
  • The company aims to demolish existing office buildings located at 50, 100, 101, and 150 Northwest Point Boulevard and construct a data center campus with two two-story data center buildings.
  • Construction of the first data center is scheduled to commence by the end of 2024, with an estimated completion in late 2028. The timeline for the second building will span from 2026 to 2029.
