Registration Statement on Form F-1


File No. 333-248658

Dear Ms. Krebs, Mr. Kauten, Ms. Collins, Ms. Kindelan:

On behalf of our client, Chindata Group Holdings Limited

, a foreign private issuer incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands (the “Company”), we are filing herewith amendment No. 2 to the Company’s registration statement on Form F-1 (the “Registration Statement”) and exhibits via EDGAR to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”). To facilitate your review, we have separately delivered to you four courtesy copies of the Registration Statement, marked to show changes to the registration statement filed with the Commission on September 18, 2020, and two copies of the submitted exhibits.

The Company advises the Staff that COVID-19 has not had a material adverse effect on the Company’s operations and construction projects. The Company also advises the Staff that all of the Company’s business with ByteDance is based in China and for the operations of ByteDance in China only. The Company believes that the ban of the TikTok app in India and the executive orders issued by U.S. President Donald J. Trump and the recent restrictions published by the U.S. Department of Commerce to potentially prohibit transactions with the TikTok app in the United States has not had a material adverse effect on the Company’s business and results of operations.

In addition, the Company respectfully advises the Staff that it will commence the roadshow for the proposed offering shortly after the date hereof, and expects to request acceleration of the effectiveness of the Registration Statement on or about September 29, 2020. The Company would appreciate the Staff’s timely assistance and support to the Company in meeting the proposed timetable for the offering.
