LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CRG West is pleased to announce the acquisition of a 285,000 square-foot data center and office property in Reston, Virginia. The facility, located at 12100 Sunrise Valley Drive, is situated along the fiber-rich corridor in Northern Virginia and is a short distance from CRG West’s existing data center located at 1275 K Street in Washington, D.C. Developed as a world-class data center, colocation space will be available within months in this premier facility after CRG West invests more than $20 million in building and infrastructure improvements.
Significantly remodeled in 2000, the 12100 Sunrise Valley Drive facility is expected to open in the second quarter of 2008 and offers 60,000 square-feet of raised-floor space and 180,000 square-feet of first-class office space. Primary power to the data center is fed from separate substations and CRG West will deliver customers up to N+1 or 2N power redundancies, with a critical load of up to 175 Watts/SF. In addition to an exceptional amount of power available, the data center is well connected with networks such as Verizon, Verizon Business, Level (3), Qwest, and Sprint already present in the facility.
The acquisition greatly expands CRG West’s colocation offering in Washington, DC. Since early 2007, CRG West’s 1275 K Street has been near full capacity. The de facto meet-me room for Washington, D.C., 1275 K Street has nearly 40 networks and is a major point of interconnection on the East Coast.
“We have found a great asset to offer best-in-class colocation space and services to enterprises and government users. Our facility will meet government security requirements and offer the power densities and peering opportunities demanded by enterprises. The Washington, D.C. area is one of the key peering points in the Eastern United States and we expect to continue to play a significant role in its growth and development,” said Rob Rockwood, chief investment officer, CRG West.
The addition of this data center to the CRG West portfolio continues the trend of growth for CRG West which now offers colocation space in the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and Washington, D.C.
