“Paris is a significant addition to our global offering and an important area in our expansion efforts,” said Doug Adams, CEO and President, NTT Global Data Centers & Submarine Cable.” 

“This investment complements our existing and growing presence in Frankfurt, London and Amsterdam, and will complete our footprint in the FLAP Tier 1 markets in Europe,” said Florian Winkler, Chief Executive Officer EMEA and Global Chief Operating Officer, NTT Global Data Centers.” 

Logistics Capital Partners had first acquired the former brownfield site in 2019 through a public auction and subsequently managed the demolition, decontamination, and obtained the permits and necessary power connections for data center usage. Logistics Capital Partners (LCP) will remain strategically involved to support the development and delivery of this new campus.

As demand for data usage and computation continues to increase with the wider use of generative AI and other technologies, the need for data centers is expected to continue to grow around the globe. The Paris market addition is part of NTT’s global expansion efforts to meet these needs, including recent announcements of new data center campuses in Virginia in the United States, and in Noida and Chennai in India. All are part of the company’s over $10 billion investment in data center growth for fiscal years 2023-27, while driving towards achieving NTT’s net-zero emissions target for its own operations including sourcing 100% renewable energy by 2030.
