CyrusOne plans data center in Loudoun
- February 20, 2014
CyrusOne announced plans Thursday to build a 400,000-square-foot data center in the Loudoun Tech Center in Sterling.
This will be the first data center facility on the East Coast for the Dallas-based data center services provider.
“The purchase of acreage in Northern Virginia is the first step in extending CyrusOne’s presence to the East Coast,” Gary Wojtaszek, president and CEO of CyrusOne, said in a statement. “We’re very excited to bring our unique approach to providing colocation solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprise customers to a market such as Northern Virginia, which has superior fiber connectivity options and a steady absorption rate of new space.”
CyrusOne recently purchased the 14 acres to accommodate a shell of about 400,000 square feet that would include up to 240,000 square feet of raised floor space and 36,000 feet of Class A office space.
The first phase of construction includes a 124,000-square-foot shell with 60,000 square feet of raised floor space, 15,000 square feet of office space and 12 megawatts of critical load.
CyrusOne expects the first phase of the new site to be completed during 2014.
