5C Data Centers (5CDC) has unveiled plans for its new data center campus, CMH01, in the Columbus, Ohio area, following the purchase of a live data center.

This site, situated in a rapidly expanding North American data center market, covers over 1,742,400 square feet and includes a functional 66,000-square-foot data center.

The site is poised for significant expansion, with an additional 320,000 square feet of data center capacity planned for the next development phase.

This development will enable 5CDC to provide substantial data center capacity tailored for high-performance applications to hyperscale, AI, and cloud customers.

Expressing his excitement on this new acquisition, Steve Perez, Founder and President of 5CDC said that initial discussions with hyperscale and large cloud customers revealed “significant interest,” resulting in the first phase of the project being fully leased.

The remaining capacity is expected to be operational by Q3 2024. “Once fully developed, CMH01 will be one of the largest data center campuses in the region,” added Perez.

Marking a significant milestone for 5CDC, Nick Etscheid, Chief Corporate Development Officer of 5CDC stated, “This is the first of many mega-campuses we plan to announce, and we are excited about CMH01 given the strong fundamentals and scalability of this particular area for our customers.”

The CMHO1 site will have 200MW of secured power capacity, with the first 100MW set to be delivered by Q1 2025.
