Lendlease is constructing the core and shell on a built-to-suit basis for PDG, on a long-term lease, while PDG will operate and manage the data centre.
The total development value of the project will be in excess of A$800m (£456m) for Lendlease, while PDG is investing US$1bn (£819m).
Kajima Corporation has been appointed as contractor and Nikken Sekkei Ltd as designer.
The first phase is due to be completed in 2024.
The data centre will be one of the largest in Japan and is designed to serve the hyper-scale requirements of some of the world’s largest cloud, commerce, and content companies.
The facility is sited on approximately 33,000 sq.metres of land in one of the major commercial centres in the Greater Tokyo area.
Andrew Gauci, Lendlease managing director of Japan & head of Telecoms and Data Infrastructure Asia, said:
“We are excited to commence construction of our first data center project under Lendlease Data Centre Partners, for a Pan-Asia market leader like PDG.
“This contributes to the Japanese government’s plans to increase data capability in the country and improve digital resilience.”
