Ada Infrastructure accelerates Tokyo expansion with groundbreaking of second building on the Tokyo West 1 data centre campus

Ada Infrastructure, GLP Capital Partners’ leading global data centre platform, has announced the groundbreaking of its second building on the Tokyo West 1 campus, an expansion driven by increased demand from enterprise and hyperscale customers in this top-tier APAC market.

The campus will feature three multi-story buildings constructed to LEED Gold certification standards with a combined IT load capacity of 31MW. Designed for efficiency and sustainability, each data centre will feature electrical and mechanical systems that are configured day one to enable both air-cooling for typical hardware as well as liquid cooling for high-density AI/ML workloads.

The first building of the Tokyo West 1 data centre campus, situated within a network-rich environment in proximity to some of the largest enterprise, information technology, telecommunications, and hyperscaler companies, is set to be operational by mid-2025.  

Japan is a well-established data centre market, with major domestic and international players contributing to the dynamic landscape. The Tokyo market is expected to continue its growth trajectory, which reflects a broader regional trend where countries are ramping up their digital infrastructure to cater to the growing demand for AI and cloud-based services.

“We are pleased to celebrate the groundbreaking of our second building at Tokyo West 1 campus. The success of this project is the result of combining GLP Japan’s existing real estate portfolio and core capabilities in acquiring land for development with Ada Infrastructure’s team of data centre industry experts,” said Yoshiyuki Chosa, President, Japan at GLP Capital Partners. “We will continue to leverage our expertise, scale and synergies to provide data centre customers with sustainable digital infrastructure.”

Ada Infrastructure’s expansion strategy in Japan is well-positioned to take advantage of outsized demand from enterprise and hyperscaler customers for data centre capacity in the APAC region. The region is becoming increasingly significant due to the expansion of AI and the green energy transition, which is impacting data centre design, site selection and investment approaches.

With more than 600MW of IT load currently available across four planned campuses in Tokyo and one in Osaka, GLP Capital Partners and its digital infrastructure vertical Ada Infrastructure are positioned to deliver sustainable, safe, secure and reliable data centre solutions to satisfy current and future demand from business application, cloud and AI computing deployments.

According to Cushman & Wakefield’s 2024 Global Data Center Market Comparison report, the operational capacity of APAC’s data centre markets has surpassed the 10GW mark, with approximately 800MW of new supply added in the second half of 2023, bringing the total regional live capacity up to 10.6GW. Almost 80% of the operational capacity is concentrated in the region’s top five markets – Mainland China (3.9GW), Japan (1.3GW), Australia (1.2GW), India (1.1GW) and Singapore (962MW).
