Prime Data Centers has just announced the launch of its new three-story, carrier-neutral data center project in Vernon, Los Angeles, California.

As designed, the facility will feature a three-story data center building which spans 261,000 square feet with a capacity to deliver up to 33MW of critical power once fully developed.

For power supply, Prime plans to construct a 49.5MVA substation to serve the new site which will be served with power from Vernon’s municipally owned and operated electric utility (VPU). As announced, VPU plans to serve Prime’s new substation at 66kV.

“As our first data center development in southern California, this bolsters our strong presence across the rest of the state. Los Angeles is a thriving global connectivity market, and our new hyperscale Vernon data center will be right in the middle of it all,” said Nicholas Laag, CEO and Founder of Prime Data Centers.

As a carrier-neutral facility, the new Los Angeles data center will offer multiple connectivity options to tenants, enabling them to obtain wholesale dark fiber connectivity to about five interconnection hubs in downtown Los Angeles including One Wilshire, 600 W. Seventh Street, 530 W. Sixth Street, 900 N. Alameda, and 818 W. Seventh Street.

With plans to complete and open the data center by Q4 2023, the new Prime Los Angeles facility will also include dedicated office, storage and staging options.

Less than five months ago, Prime Data Centers also announced the development of a new 119,000 square-foot data center in Silicon Valley, precisely located at 1231 Comstock Street in Santa Clara, California.

The new in Silicon Valley data center is designed to be a four-story, carrier-neutral facility which will leverage major fiber routes along the facility’s location. This data center is expected to deliver up to 9MW of critical power which will be available upon full build.
