In Frankfurt, the five-acre campus located in Raunheim will provide 40MW and total more than 355,000 square feet (33,000 sqm) once complete. The initial phase of this five-story facility is scheduled for delivery in the fall of 2022. The company is currently developing its first Frankfurt campus in Offenbach; the two campuses combined will provide a total of 95MW.

In Berlin, the new two two-story building campus will sit on 12 acres and provide 32MW across a combined 260,000 sq ft (24,000 sqm) footprint. The initial phase is scheduled to be operational in the summer of 2022. Development continues at the company’s first Berlin campus, and once fully developed, both campuses will offer a total of 64MW.

“Our new developments in Frankfurt and Berlin are testaments to our significant growth throughout EMEA in less than 24 months in the market,” said Antoine Boniface, president, Vantage EMEA. “Our portfolio now consists of nine campuses throughout EMEA, including our recently announced development in South Africa. Demand from our customers continues to increase in these major economic centers, and our ability to scale quickly ensures our sustainable, state-of-the-art facilities will be ready to meet our customers’ business needs.”

The company only broke ground on its first Berlin campus in July. The 250,000 sq ft (24,000 sqm) BER1 campus, located in Brandenburg Park, will be comprised of two 16MW buildings. The first phase, scheduled for completion in early 2022, will include 8MW of IT capacity.

Vantage opened its first Frankfurt facility in November 2020 after acquiring Etix earlier that year and taking over development.
