Suite 110 goes above and beyond location benefits to include prime accessibility, extensive network connectivity, and the efficiency of brand new infrastructure. The Element Critical Chicago One and Chicago Two data center facilities, located only 8 miles from O’Hare International Airport, are powerhouse performers and resiliency-leading data centers, boasting 30+ years of continuous uptime. 

So Why is Chicago so Desirable? 

For starters, the midwestern city acts as a perfect bridge between the East Coast and West Coast markets. The strategic location of the city also provides many benefits such as low risks of natural disasters, a flourishing business climate, and relatively low power costs. According to the Chicago Business Journal, “Chicago saw 27.4 MW net absorption in 2021, per a CBRE report, driven by hyperscale activity ‘as users and colocation providers take advantage of state tax incentives.’” The legislation offers tax exemptions on qualified tactile personal property used for both new and existing data centers. Element Critical is actively meeting the Chicago market demands by equipping Suite 110 with the latest power and cooling infrastructure that supports 1 MW of critical power in a N+1 design. With 4,100 square feet of truly customizable space, this secure data hall is designed and ready for single customer leasing.
