On September 25, 2023, Aligned Data Centers announced the acquisition of a new brownfield land in Perkins Township., Northeast Ohio. The firm purchased the 129-acre parcel to construct a new four-building hyperscale data center campus. 

Aligned said its NEO-01 data center, the first of the four planned facilities for the site, will help customers expand rapidly upon demand and support several workloads, including cloud and AI. The NEO-01 will also offer densities above 300KW per rack via air-cooled, liquid-cooled, or hybrid cooling solutions, including Aligned’s Delta waterless heat rejection technology.

Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned, acknowledged the company’s excitement to enter the Northeast Ohio market. He said, “As part of our sustainability mission, Aligned has not shied away from redeveloping brownfield projects that have lain dormant for many years (sometimes decades) in communities. Transforming these properties into assets for the local community is a win-win-win – removing blight, generating revenue, returning jobs to a former industrial location, and preserving greenfields for other uses.”
