    Default Google Data Center @ Jurong West

    Noticed that Google is building a massive data center along Jurong West St 22. A quick check on that Masterplan shows that the entire block of empty land around it has been zoned for business. With google there, I am wonder if that piece of land is going to be turn into some kind of technology hub?

    And right next to it, there is a plot that is marked as transport facilities. What kind of transport facilities could that be?

    where did you get the info about google? I only see for the past few months, there is a lot of activities and seems like they are constructing roads...

    Just a data center and you don't need that many people to run the data center. just make sure air con is on and power is available and can remotely check from office elsewhere.

    Part of the fun here

    They will attract other companies that service them there. It is a chain reaction.

    You need to read more about government date center park plan lah, the entire block of land 8 ha = 80000 m2 has even zone out for data center park. This is definitely not a 1 factory news we are talking about here. With Ida jtc edb all involve I am sure this shoud take off.

    u are right...next, take a look at the mrt map, where do you think next announcement going to be targeted at for additional mrt line?? JE & JW combined has so many ppl and what about the CBD coming up which will have more human traffic? Clean Tech Pk, NTU, Data Hub, LCK, Tengah, CCK....
    in my opinion, it is very obvious. so once such announcement comes, those property going to chiong liao, still got the the JLD story...

    very very busy till 2018 at least eh...

    this is just my opinion...

    this is not the little office server that company keep in their little aircon IT room. This is a 2.45 hector USD120m google data center that uses state of the art green cooling technology.

    recently someone wrote to ST asking LTA about the ability for Jurong East to support the JLD, they mentioned that they are going to increase the frequency of the train but stop short talking anything about the new MRT line. But it is possible that a circle line circulate around JLD can be build.
