Frankfurt has proposed a development plan to regulate data centers in the area. The plan, it says, will prevent the “uncontrolled growth” of data centers. The city is the hub of the data center industry in Germany, and one of the four largest hubs in Europe, taking up 64 hectares (640,000 sqm...
Country: Germany / Deutschland
Region: Western Europe
Total Building SqFt: 721,182
Gross SqFt: 269,097
Total Power: 24.0 Megawatts
Ownership: Telehouse owns the building.
Telehouse has room to expand further at the site and says it is likely to build another facility of a similar size (9,000 square meters of technical space) and retrofit an older building currently sitting dormant on the land, or demolish it and build afresh, in future. Such plans will bring the total facility count at the site to five, with two smaller facilities operational alongside Telehouse A-North, which was originally built by Databurg, the company Telehouse acquired in 2012.
Access to power can be a struggle in the Frankfurt market, but Telehouse struck a deal with local provider Mainova in 2012 where in return for access to free land, the provider built a 110kV substation on campus in late 2016. All Telehouse builds on campus will connect into the new substation.
