ESR Cayman, one of AIPAC’s largest real asset managers, powered by the New Economy, has acquired a key data centre asset in Higashi Kurume, which is in the Mitaka area of Tokyo, Japan. This asset is primely located in one of Tokyo’s most established data centre clusters and comprises three office buildings within a total site area of 20,900 square metres, enabling the creation of a 20 megawatt (MW) IT load data centre.
The new facility is expected to commence operations in September 2025. It will provide 20MW of new data centre capacity to support the community of enterprises located in west-central Tokyo, including existing operators, as well as new market entrants in the wider, supply-constrained Tokyo market.
“Tokyo is the primary hub for international firms to access the Japan market,” said Diarmid Massey, CEO, Data Centres of ESR. “Its geographical location as the most prominent technology and financial market situated in the north-west of Asia has resulted in it becoming one of the first landing points for a sizable number of submarine cables to connect the western US to the rest of Asia. Japan remains as one of the largest data centre markets in the APAC region and hence a highly important strategic market for ESR.”Click below to share this article
