Zayo acquires data center in McLean
Zayo Group Holdings Inc. has acquired a data center in McLean. The price was not disclosed.
The Boulder, Colo.-based company said the acquisition, which includes tenants, data center systems and long-term leases, was driven by strong demand in the Washington, D.C., area for low-latency colocation, interconnection and access to fiber infrastructure.
The 62,000-square-foot facility is Zayo’s second data-center acquisition in Northern Virginia. It’s located at 1764 Old Meadow Lane. Zayo plans to upgrade the critical power at the site to 3 megawatts (MW) and to make other enhancements.
The data center will tether directly to Zayo’s data center in Ashburn, and to Zayo’s network point of presence on M Street in Washington.
“Northern Virginia is one of the most important data-center markets in the world, with a diverse base of service providers, enterprises, and government agencies all contributing to strong demand,” T.J. Karklins, senior vice president of Zaco’s Colo business segment, said in a statement. “This acquisition provides an important second Northern Virginia location for our client solutions and creates a strong data-center option for firms located downtown and in the heart of the Beltway.”
