(Hammond, IN – August 25, 2020) T5 Data Centers has been selected by Digital Crossroad (DX), a wholesale data center developer, to provide critical facility management services for the company’s new data center campus located at the site of the former State Line Generating Plant in Hammond, Indiana.
Digital Crossroad is celebrating the first phase of its 1.7 million square foot data center campus 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.
Located just outside of downtown Chicago’s growing tech hub, the DX campus offers customers highly-attractive state tax incentives, including a 50-year, 100% sales and use tax exemption with no minimum investment.
In addition to economic benefits, the campus will deploy an on-site solar power generation plant and an innovative free water cooling system that ties directly into Lake Michigan.
