November 15, 2023 - APAC data center firm SC Zeus Data Centers has acquired land in Osaka, Japan.
The company, part of the SC Capital Partners Group, this week announced plans to develop a data center campus on the land.
Located “in close proximity” to Osaka’s central business district, the initial roll-out will offer 25MW of capacity in phase one. Timelines for delivery weren’t shared.
Joe Gooi, CEO of SC Zeus, said: "We are thrilled to announce the successful acquisition of our site in Osaka. This is another significant step in our journey, following the start of a hyperscale facility development in South Korea. It demonstrates our strong commitment to providing robust data center solutions in the APAC region."
Earlier this week, Nikkei Asia reported SC Capital was aiming to invest $660 million in building two data centers in Osaka, the first of which would open in 2027.
Singaporean real estate investment firm SC Capital Partners (SCCP) launched Zeus last year as a joint venture with Abner Investments.
At the time, the company said it was planning a 45,000 sqm (484,350 sq ft), 45MW facility in Seoul, South Korea.
Zeus CEO Gooi was previously Digital Realty’s head of portfolio.
Established in 2004, SC Capital Partners is a privately owned APAC real estate firm that owns a variety of retail, office, hospitality, residential, and industrial properties across Asia Pacific. Zeus is seemingly the company’s first data center investment.
