Fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty (1547) has plans for a large data center campus in Pennsylvania. The company partnered with Green Fig Land Company (GFLC), a real estate company, to acquire over 100 acres of land to develop a data center campus. The data center will span 2 million square feet of space. It will also have 150MW of available utility power. Energy provider PECO will also make up to 140MW available during the build-out by 2024.

GFLC already has the approval to develop two data centers of up to 1 million square feet each. In addition, the property adjacent to the data center site can accommodate up to 5 million square feet of data center buildings. The CEO of 1547, J. Todd Raymond, said: “The demand for hyperscale and enterprise data center space and access to power continues to grow at an exponential rate. 1547 is focused on identifying and developing key markets with proximity to the network to serve as Edge deployments in highly populated geographies.”

He continued by saying: “We have seen the success of partnering with local and state governments throughout our portfolio, including our partnership with Rockland County, where our flagship data center in Orangeburg, New York is located, which has attracted Fortune 100 companies and large hyperscalers, since space and power are immediately available along with the proximity of connectivity to facilities in Manhattan. This saves our customers millions of dollars in tax incentives and creates long-term partnerships that scale as their data center needs grow.”
