CyrusOne will conduct a groundbreaking ceremony today for its new data center at the Loudoun Tech Center in Sterling, Va.
“The multi-tenant data center will enable us to more effectively serve our growing customer base on the East Coast. We look forward to providing our enterprise colocation solutions to Fortune 1000 customers in this sizeable market,” said Tesh Durvasula, chief commercial officer of CyrusOne.
Northern Virginia is home to one of the world’s largest clusters of data center real estate, and an estimated 70 percent of Internet traffic passes through Loudoun County.
CyrusOne said the 14 acres of land is expected to accommodate a shell of approximately 400,000 square feet at full build, with up to 240,000 square feet of raised floor space, 36,000 square feet of Class A office space, and up to 48 megawatts of critical load.
CyrusOne plans to use its Massively Modular design engineering approach to optimize materials sourcing.
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 in October.
