New Albany, Ohio is already wildly known as the next Silicon Valley of the Midwest, and there’s been recent focus on the area as Intel broke ground on its chip factory. President Joe Biden was in attendance and spoke about the growth it will ultimately bring to the area.
Lincoln Rackhouse, the data center division of Lincoln Property Company, is thrilled to be part of the growth in New Albany, Ohio. Today, the company announced that construction for the substation that will serve the multi-use technology and distribution park (Silicon Heartland Innovation Park) designed for data center and industrial users and operators is underway. The expected delivery is July 2024.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Lincoln Property Company and Harrison Street acquired the 190-acre land site in New Albany with a data center campus that can accommodate up to 1.2 million square feet and 144MW of critical load designed specifically for hyperscalers and other major operators.
The site will provide access to:
- Recently expanded road systems
- Dual 345 KVA transmission lines
- Reliable electrical service
- Substantial water resources
- Abundant fiber network
American Electric Power (AEP) Ohio also recently announced power upgrades, known as the Parsons Avenue Transmission Project, to the electrical grid in order to accommodate the influx of development in the area.
