Prime real estate: wholesale developer unveils Silicon Valley facility
Prime Data Centers is to develop a four-storey, 121,000-square-foot data centre in Silicon Valley.
The wholesale data centre real estate developer has secured 1111 Comstock Street, Santa Clara, for its new, carrier-neutral facility – a strategic location at the center of major fibre routes following diverse paths to the top Tier 1 long haul and metro providers.
Construction is due to begin before the end of December and the facility is expected to be ready to accept tenants in late 2021.
“We are excited to develop this new facility in Santa Clara, one of the most sought-after data centre locations in the world,” said Nicholas Laag, CEO of Prime Data Centers.
“Prime Data Centers is breaking ground at this location so that we can continue to offer the most strategic and advantageous wholesale data centre leasing in California.”
Supporting its proximity to major fiber routes, Prime Data Centers has secured access to new dark fibre routes to all major interconnect facilities in Silicon Valley. However, its location won’t lead to higher costs. Drawing up to 9MW of critical power, under current rules the property will benefit from a near 40% reduction in utility rates when compared to other Bay Area providers, due to its strategic location outside of the San Francisco metro area.
