Fremont, CA: Digital Crossroad has selected T5 Data Centers (DX), a world-renowned wholesale data center developer, for the provision of critical facility management services for the company's new data center campus situated at the site of the former State Line Generating Plant in Hammond, Indiana.
Digital Crossroad is all set to celebrate the completion of the first phase of its 1.7 million square foot data center campus along with the launch of the DX-1 facility on October 31, 2020, bringing 20MW of critical power and 108,000 square feet of IT and office space.
The DX campus is located conveniently just outside of downtown Chicago's growing tech hub, offering customers highly-attractive state tax incentives, comprising a 50-year, 100 percent sales and use tax exemption with no minimum investment. In addition to economic benefits, the campus also has plans to deploy an on-site solar power generation plant and an innovative free water cooling system directly linked to Lake Michigan.
