DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center and interconnection solutions across the U.S., announced that in April it executed a sizeable pre-lease at its SV8 Data Center at its Santa Clara campus.
Hyperscale Pre-lease in Santa Clara
In April, CoreSite pre-leased approximately 108,000 net rentable square feet, or about two-thirds of its SV8 data center that is under construction, including phases 1 and 2. CoreSite expects to complete construction on phases I and 2 late in the third and fourth quarters of 2019, respectively. The addition of this hyperscale lease complements CoreSite’s Santa Clara campus that currently serves a wide range of core retail, scale and hyperscale colocation customers.
CoreSite’s current development of SV8 and future development of SV9 reflect its strategy of operating a national platform of network-dense, cloud-enabled data centers, hosting enterprises, networks and cloud service providers to enable high-performance applications among CoreSite’s customers.
Opportunistically Evaluating Scale Leases that Value CoreSite’s Differentiated Data Centers
“We’re very excited to have executed this hyperscale pre-lease at our SV8 data center,” said Maile Kaiser, CoreSite’s Senior Vice President of Sales. “We expect to continue to pursue scale and hyperscale opportunities for businesses who require low latency and high performance capabilities and that value our differentiated, rich ecosystem, located in our edge markets. As we continue to focus on our current property development pipeline with ground up developments in Santa Clara, Virginia, Chicago and Los Angeles, and expansions at our NY2 and Boston data centers, we will be looking for the right scale opportunities that complement our valuable core retail colocation business base,” said Kaiser.
