The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center project is a state-of-the-art computing facility in downtown Holyoke, an economically distressed city in southwestern Massachusetts that the state has targeted for a major redevelopment effort. The LEED-certified, 90,300-square-foot center is designed to house a cluster of powerful computers that provide high performance computational capability to support the research needs of the state’s most research-intensive universities. The first of its kind in the country, the $89 million facility helps Massachusetts maintain its position as a national leader in scientific research and innovation. It catalyzes public and private investment in Holyoke and the surrounding Pioneer Valley, generating employment and boosting economic development.
