HYDE PARK — Computer servers will replace bread and ovens in a historic bakery left vacant in the Washington Park neighborhood for 11 years.
On Wednesday, 1547 Critical Systems Realty announced it would use almost half of the five-story building at 40 E. Garfield Blvd. for a data center.
“With an initial planned investment of over $130 million, this data center will provide the much needed capacity the Chicago market requires as well as jobs to the area,” said J. Todd Raymond, CEO of 1547.
