May 19, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

The Australian company CDC Data Centres has purchased a 17-hectare plot in Sydney. According to RealEstateSource, the Australian real estate investment fund Roberts Jones Funds and Development purchased Burra Park in Badgerys Creek, west Sydney, for $99 million this week. Robert Jones mentions that the company intends to construct a data center at the location, its second campus, in western Sydney.

Director Jonathan Pan stated that Roberts Jones had divested a portion of their Burra Park site to capitalize on the robust, ongoing market demand for high-quality real estate in and around the Aerotropolis. He added that CDC's primary operation aligns with their objectives for Burra Park, a high-tech enterprise, logistics, and mixed-use job precinct in the core of the Aerotropolis.

CDC maintains a four-building campus with 123 MW nearby at Eastern Creek. In 2018, construction of the Eastern Creek Campus commenced. EC1 provides 7MW, EC2 provides 20MW, EC3 provides 43MW, and EC4 provides 54MW. The campus will expand to six buildings and 213MW in the future.

The CDC also currently has thirteen data centers across six campuses in Auckland (New Zealand), Canberra, and Sydney and is currently constructing a new data center campus in Melbourne. Midway through 2021, Robert Jones purchased 344 hectares of Burra Park land from the Medich family for around $370 million.
