Mid-Year Data Center Report Courtesy of Grubb & Ellis
A key focus of the report, since Grubb & Ellis is a firm specializing in advisory on commercial real estate, is factors involved in site-selection for data centers.
An important and complicated factor to consider is the trend of states offering tax-incentives to attract data center construction. These incentives are pretty competitive, since sales-tax and property-tax end up costing quite a lot of money, and the report breaks down what’s going on in this respect with various states.
The report also covers other typical factors like details of power availability and affordability, and potential trouble from natural disasters.
A point of particular interest to companies looking to build should be the report’s discussion of areas like Chicago and Northern Virginia which are comparatively low on data centers and are trying to attract more facilities.
Download the full report here for more detailed information on all these topics and others. For companies looking to build or move, the information about tax incentives and power should be especially helpful.
The report gives a good summary of what’s going on in data centers around the US so far this year.
