NORTHLAKE, ILL. — St. Louis-based Ascent Corp. has commenced development of its second Chicagoland data center. Known as CH2, the center will consist of an approximately 250,000-square-foot data center facility. It will feature fully customizable suites divisible from 10,000 square feet. Individual suites can be built out from basic core and shell to fully constructed, turnkey space. Suites also can be built to include separate docks, entrances and lobbies. Users can choose from raised or slab floors, chilled water or air-side cooling, container-based computers or racks, and varying levels of power density and energy efficiency. The new data center will feature its own dedicated utility substation, which is being constructed on-site. Completion is slated for the end of the year. The project is being built near CH1, a 707,000-square-foot data center that was developed by Ascent last year, and subsequently leased by Microsoft Corp. The facility is now known as Northlake Data Center.
