In June of this year, CyrusOne bought 40 acres from the Kincora project in Northern Virginia's Loudoun County. It was not exactly a secret what the company planned to do with that land, and indeed today the company announced it has broken ground on the construction of what will be its fifth data center in the state.
And just in case you were wondering, it's not small. When complete, CyrusOne's new data center will offer 654,000 square feet of space, which is more than everything they have in service today in the region. It will support power densities from 250 up to 900 watts per square foot.
CyrusOne first entered the northern Virginia market and Sterling specifically in early 2014 and they've been expanding as fast as they can ever since. In August they acquired a shell at 511 Shaw and brought it online along side the two they had built out in Sterling. If this will be the fifth, there must be another in the works that I've forgotten - I'm sure it will come to me though...
