EdgeCore, Penzance to build 36MW data center in northern Virginia

by Kali Persall

EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure, a wholesale data center developer, owner and operator, has forged a partnership with Penzance, a Washington, D.C.–based real estate developer, expanding its presence in  the heart of the largest data center market in the world.

The partners will co-develop 7.6 acres of land, centrally located in Northern Virginia. The parcel is expected to accommodate a 285,000-square-foot, three-story data center, capable of supporting 36 megawatts of critical load. The site plan approval process is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

EdgeCore's existing 348,000-square-foot site is capable of supporting 54 megawatts of critical load and is located 2 miles from the newly acquired land. Combined, both EdgeCore data center sites provide 633,000 square feet of space and 90 megawatts of critical load to customers.

A dozen local and national long-haul fiber providers are located adjacent to the site, making EdgeCore's newest data center location an attractive option for major cloud and internet companies. EdgeCore said the site supports customers seeking high performance capacity with low-latency access to leading cloud hubs and supporting network access across northern Virginia.

“With the acquisition of additional land in northern Virginia, EdgeCore adds another key data center location to our portfolio and continues to advance our focus on rapid growth and development in key data center markets,” said Lee Kestler, CEO of EdgeCore. “We are pleased to have partnered with Penzance on this project and are grateful for the acceleration they are bringing to the process through their deep regional expertise and connections.”

In November 2022, Partners Group acquired EdgeCore with plans of investing up to $1.2 billion to fund the acquisition and buildout of existing and future data center sites.
