Kennedy Wilson, a renowned real estate investment company, has filed plans with South Buckinghamshire Council to build a 73MW data center site in the outskirts of Slough, UK.
The company is looking to destroy the set of office buildings that are considered commercially infeasible. Meanwhile, Kwere II, an affiliate of Kennedy Wilson, has submitted documents with the regional council for developing Wexham Springs Data Center at Framewood Road in Wexham.
Per the information presented on Kennedy Wilson’s new website, the company is looking to develop two data center buildings on the Wexham site. With an estimated investment of $427M on the site, the development would comprise ancillary offices, a generator compound, and a substation building that sizes a total of 645,800 sq ft.
Most of the Wexham site will consist of gardens, woodland, and wetland. Currently, there are four main buildings on the 6-hectare plot in the center of the site. These buildings are offices, printing supplies, and a pharmaceutical company.
Kennedy Wilson mentions that it has enough power for Wexham Springs to house a data center powering up to 100 MW capacity. Additionally, the company aims to begin the construction of the data center in 2024 and accomplish it by 2026.
If we talk more about the site, it incorporates numerous cement sculptures and statues, including the Grade II Listed Corn King and Spring Queen sculpture, based on a 1931 book by Scottish.
