A former HSBC data center in Illinois is up for auction later this month.
Via LoopNet, Cushman & Wakefield is offering a data center in Volo up for auction on June 6-8.
According to the listing, the Volo Data Center is a 160,000 sq ft (14,865 sqm) purpose-built data facility on a 42-acre parcel located at 300 S Fish Lake Rd. Volo is a village in Lake County, northwest of Chicago.
The single-story facility offers 28,500 sq ft (2,650 sqm) of raised floor across two data halls, and offers 5.4MW of power in a 2N+1 configuration.
Fiber Carriers include Comcast, Verizon, and Zayo, with dark fiber available for other carriers to provide service to the data center. According to GBIG, the site is LEED Gold Certified and Energy Star rated.
The facility is described as a “turnkey data center ready for immediate occupancy.”
“The Volo Data Center provides any new investor the opportunity to acquire a premium asset with immense upside through the leasing of the space and the opportunity to expand the center by 310,000 square feet (28,800 sqm),” the listing notes. “The center can support an additional 36MW utility power with redundant 40-MVA feeds.”
“This is a cannot miss opportunity to acquire a purpose-built data center that is well-situated to accommodate the growing need for data center space.”
The facility was constructed by HSBC around 2007 and was most recently occupied by Capital One, which acquired HSBC’s US credit card operations in 2012. It's unclear when Capital One exited the facility. The facility is also listed on investment firm Chirisa’s website as for sale.
The online auction is set to run from June 6-8. Starting bids are $5 million.
