Urbacon and Niagara Falls Redevelopment (NFR) have announced plans for a $1.5 billion data center park on land in Niagara Falls, New York City. Urbacon is an Ontario-based construction company with an excellent track record of developing massive data center campuses in Richmond Hill, Montreal, and Toronto. NFR is a subsidiary of Milstein Properties. The company owns over 140 acres of land/real estate in Niagara Falls.

The data center campus would be developed at the intersection of John B. Daly and Rainbow Boulevards. A 55,700 square meters (600,000 square feet) highly secured and technologically advanced data center space will also be on offer at the site. The data center will also offer up to 135MW of capacity. 

NFR’s Executive VP, Roger Trevino, said the Niagara Digital Campus would be one of the most significant developments in the history of Niagara Falls. According to him, it will generate employment and high-tech opportunities that will benefit the locals for years to come. He added that the company has been discussing the plans with Niagara officials for a long time, and it looks forward to working closely with them to bring the project to fruition.
