Strategically located in the north of Osaka, the 485,000 square foot (45,000 square meters) campus will be comprised of two data centers with seismic base-isolation structures. The first facility will include 28MW of IT load and is scheduled to be operational in early 2026. The campus will be constructed in accordance with Vantage's "sustainable by design" blueprint for industry-leading energy efficiency.

Senior executives from Vantage's APAC team and the company's construction partners, notably Taisei Corporation, attended a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the commencement of the KIX1 development. The ceremony, known as Jichinsai (地鎮祭), was conducted with traditional Shinto rituals aimed at sanctifying the land and invoking safety throughout construction.

"This groundbreaking marks our first campus in Osaka and entrance into the robust data center market in Japan. Vantage is pleased to provide critical IT infrastructure to support Japan's digitalization powered by cloud and AI innovations. We look forward to serving hyperscale and enterprise customers in the Greater Osaka area and being part of the local community," said Raymond Tong, president of Vantage's APAC business.
