Another Data Center Makes Chicago a "Hot Spot"

"The amount of new data-center capacity under construction in Chicago is up significantly—rising 42%—to about 18.5 megawatts in the first half of this year from the same period in 2021...The net increase in total data center capacity leased in the first half of last year in Chicago nearly tripled to 20.1 megawatts," according to Crain's Chicago Business. There is no sign of this industry growth slowing, as plans are in place for a $1 billion data center in Elk Grove Village.
