Skybox, Prologis Partner on Elk Grove Village Data Center

Dallas-based Skybox Datacenters has started development of Skybox Chicago I, a 30-megawatt (MW), 189,000-square-foot facility in Elk Grove Village, IL. Skybox Chicago I is the first facility developed as part of a new partnership between Skybox and Prologis.

The collaboration will focus on key assets in Chicago and primary data center markets by delivering just-in-time capacity for hyperscale, colocation and enterprise customers, says Skybox. “With access to hundreds of assets in Elk Grove Village alone, Skybox and Prologis present users with unparalleled scale and a proven roadmap for future growth and opportunity,” the company says.

The 190,000-square-foot facility will offer multiple data hall configurations. It will be supported by dedicated dual 34.5 kVa services delivered by ComEd via the Itasca substation

Completion is scheduled for this coming November.
