Cushman & Wakefield has identified Berlin, Reykjavik, Oslo, Warsaw, Zurich, Milan, Vienna, Madrid and Prague as emerging hotspots for data center development in Europe. Warsaw has recently received considerable interest from hyperscalers, developers and businesses across the greater ecosystem as each determines how best to service Central and Eastern Europe. Warsaw has attracted considerable investment from international companies, headlined by Microsoft’s recent decision to invest more than $1bn in local infrastructure, training and cloud services for enterprises and government. American hyperscale operator Vantage is also planning on entering the market in 2021 with the first phase of a campus that will span 64 MW at full build-out, double the current market size.
