Northlake Data Center – Global Cloud Services Provider

M+H Architects, working with mission critical facilities expert, Ascent LLC and the developer, Koman Group, recently completed a more than $500 million, 707,244-square-foot data center for a global cloud service provider, located in Northlake, Illinois, outside of Chicago. Northlake Data Center is the most powerful data center development in Chicago and one of the most powerful data center developments in the U.S. The Chicago facility sprawls over more than 15 acres located in direct proximity to a city water pumping station, significant fiber optic bandwidth along adjacent Interstate and rail lines, and its own on-site electric substation. With three 66 MVA electrical substations that provide a total of 198 megawatts of power, Northlake will support thousands of computer servers that process internet activity and network services.
