Digital Realty Trust has purchased another 125.9 acres in Ashburn to expand its data center operations.
The $43 million deal was announced today.
The company plans to develop two million square feet and build out to roughly 150 megawatts.
Construction is expected to begin next year. Delivery will be phased to respond to customer expansion requirements after the existing Digital Ashburn data center campus is complete.
‘This acquisition is consistent with our strategy of investing in our global campus network to support the deployment of hybrid cloud environments near Internet hubs, providing capacity to grow with our best clients, and implementing our latest facility designs to support growing demand in Northern Virginia,” Digital Realty’s Chief Executive Officer A. William Stein said in a statement. “Data center demand in Ashburn remains robust, and we expect that trend to continue. Given that we are projected to approach full capacity at our existing Digital Ashburn data center campus, this land acquisition will enable us to continue to support our customers’ growth with no downtime.”
