Matawan-based data center developer acquires over 100 acres to develop 2M sq. ft.  facility

1547 Realty, a leading developer and owner of highly-interconnected data centers in North America and Europe, on Wednesday said it partnered with Green Fig Land Co. to acquire over 100 acres of land in Chester County, Pennsylvania, to develop, build and invest in a 2 million-square-foot data center.

1547 Realty said it plans to design a facility on the parcel that’s zoned for data centers and microwave towers with an initial capacity for up to 2 million square feet of space and 150 megawatts of available utility power, with additional 140 MW to be available during buildout.

GFLC obtained a zoning approval through East Whiteland Townships board of supervisors to construct two data centers of approximately 1 million square feet each on the center lots. Adjacent property is available for development of up to 5 million square feet of data center buildings.

“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,” J. Todd Raymond, CEO of 1547, stated.

GFLC is also working on a dedicated, sustainable power-generating facility on site, which would sell power to the project behind the meter.

Looking forward, 1547 Realty will be meeting with existing customers to gather insights as it proceeds with development plans for the ideal build-to-suit data center design to create a hyperconnected campus.
