The New Albany Data Center Campus is strategically located 22 minutes from the John Glenn Columbus International Airport and in a region that’s home to 50% of the U.S. population.
With close proximity to major tech companies and hyperscale data center operators such as AWS, Meta, and Google as well as access to 200+ telecommunication carriers and a future on-site AEP substation (July 2024), the New Albany Data Center campus promises ample capacity and connectivity to scale.
The AEP on-site substation is currently under construction with an expected delivery of July 2024. Double-ended 138 kV transmission lines are adjacent to the site. On-site dedicated 300 MVA substation in N+1 configuration. Space for up to five, 50 MVA substation transformers. Transmission rate available for 22% savings over distribution rate.
There will be five service provider vault locations for redundancy and the creation of multiple service provider channels. A 96-strand neutral fiber network will be built for high-speed data communications throughout the New Albany Business Park.
Up to 10 MW, 34 kV local distribution circuit available Q3-2023. 50 MW, 138 kV substation in-service Q2-2024
This site and infrastructure allow for either a singular user or multi-user data center. The 300 MVA, N+1 substation can accommodate a combination of four (4) one or two story data center buildings.
Each data hall is based on a 6 MW, 25,000 SF design supported by a 4/3 block redundant electrical system utilizing 2 MW blocks (6/5 design will also be available). The system is cooled by air cooled chillers located on the roof of each facility in an N+1 topology.
Lincoln Property Company has secured a 15-year, 100% tax abatement, with general employment zoning, in order to accommodate a wide range of uses and industries. New Albany’s Community Reinvestment Area (CRA) Real Property Tax Abatement program offers property tax exemptions for projects that result in new employment opportunities and economic growth.
The design team, which follows the AIA 2030 Commitment, will use its expertise on building performance, life cycle, building materials and the manufacturing process to make this goal a reality.
A holistic approach is used to initially evaluate the level of carbon. From there, continuous measuring and monitoring of facility operations take place. The goal is to make all new buildings for this campus carbon-neutral by 2030. Once the buildings are no longer in use, the team will determine how the materials can be recycled or reused.
