CyrusOne buys shell building in Sterling
CyrusOne has acquired a shell building in Sterling for an undisclosed price that it plans to develop into a fully redundant data center facility.
The 129,064-square-foot building is located close to other CyrusOne data center buildings in the Sterling area.
The Carrollton, Texas-based company said in a press release that the acquisition satisfies the rapid time-to-market requirements for customers’ large-scale IT deployments.
“Within just over a month, we were able to quickly identify a solution and purchase a new shell building within a highly constrained market … We expect to construct and commission a portion of the building as a data center for customer deployment before the end of the year,” Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer for Cyrus One, said in a statement.
The building at 511 Shaw Road will offer connectivity options with high bandwidth and high-availability circuits. CyrusOne said the facility would be well suited for Fortune 1000 companies that require robust data center infrastructure. The transaction closed on July 15.
CyrusOne operates more than 30 data center facilities across the U.S. Europe, and Asia.
