ST Telemedia announces two Tokyo facilities
ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) is planning two data centres in Greater Tokyo, Japan, to be developed by and leased from integrated property group Goodman.
Located within the A$4 billion Goodman Business Park in Tokyo's Inzai City, the two new facilities will comprise 60,000 square metres of gross floor area and offer a development potential of 60MW of IT power across the two buildings.
Goodman Japan will develop the shell and core of the data centres and lease the buildings on a long-term basis to STT GDC. STT GDC will fitout and then operate state-of-the art data centres, with the first building expected to be ready for service in Q2 2024.
Nicholas Toh, CEO – Northeast Asia, STT GDC said: “With power already secured, these new, carrier-neutral facilities are purpose-designed to meet the scalable capacity demands of hyperscale and enterprise customers looking for large scale facilities to meet growing requirements. With this, we are confident of bringing significant value to the Japan data centre market as we grow with our customers who are expanding their footprint into this market.”
The new facilities add to STT GDC’s portfolio of more than 130 data centres across Singapore, India, China, Thailand, and other key growth markets in the Asia region.
Further, STT GDC will be in good company in Inzai. In the last year Colt DCS, AirTrunk, Princeton Digital Group and in 2019, MC Digital Realty announced a JV with Mitsubishi Corporation to construct a new data centre in Inzai.
Greg Goodman, CEO of Goodman Group, commented: “We are excited to welcome STT GDC to Goodman Business Park and the opportunity to partner with a fast-growing global data centre operator.
"With this pre-lease, we will have fully leased eight separate stages of development within Goodman Business Park, which also includes amenity and retail offerings for our customers and the wider community. This new partnership with STT GDC illustrates our global strategy of providing high-quality assets in attractive locations to suit our customers’ needs. With several sustainability initiatives planned for this project, we will also continue to execute on our commitment to sustainability and best-in-class amenity for our customers.”
