Corscale, a newly created hyperscale data center platform of the Patrinely Group, has commenced construction at its 130-acre data center campus in Gainesville, Northern Virginia.

As a multi-phased project, Corscale has now broken ground on the first data center building which is a single two-story facility that is designed to deliver 72MW power capacity with eight data halls and office space totaling approximately 483,000 square feet. This phase is scheduled to come online by Q4 2022.

“This launch of Corscale’s Northern Virginia data center campus is a testament to our vision to develop a global portfolio of sustainable data centers. It will be one of the largest data center developments in Prince William County to launch in 2022,” said Stuart Levinsky, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing at Corscale.

When fully developed, the Northern Virginia campus is expected to deliver up to 300MW power capacity and span 2.3 million gross square feet of data center space across five two-story buildings.

For power supply, the campus will feature an on-site substation owned by Dominion Energy which will deliver power and support densities beyond 300 watts per square foot at the data center campus. Corscale adds that the campus will also feature various energy-efficient practices including enhanced cooling techniques, energy tracking, water conservation, and targets an ultra-low PUE.

“Corscale is focused on implementing industry leading de-carbonization and sustainability initiatives. We want to ensure that as stewards of critical natural resources, we enable our client’s own goals through real-time energy transparency,” said Nic Bustamante, Senior Vice President of Development at Corscale.

Corscale with its capital partner USAA Real Estate, further plans to expand the data center company footprint across the United States and the United Kingdom with the development of other data center sites in London; Santa Clara, California; Texas and an additional site in Northern Virginia.
