Up to 70 percent of the world’s internet traffic flows through Loudoun County’s nearly six million sq. ft. of data centers each day, dubbing the Northern Virginia region “Data Center Alley.” DPR has long been a part of the growing data center presence in Virginia and is continuing its role in the economic development of the county with its newest project, which broke ground October 15, 2015.
The 45-acre Equinix Ashburn North campus will add 1.2 million sq. ft. of new data center space, contained within five new data centers, adding to Equinix’s existing stock of 10 data centers in the North Ashburn area. Major components of the early phases of the project include the mass earthwork, wet and dry utilities, paving and landscaping – set to be completed in early 2016.
