FORMING A SILICON VALLEY DATA CENTER CLUSTER
Prime Data Centers, has 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 four-story data center facility is designed to be carrier-neutral, leveraging major fiber routes along the facility’s location. The new Prime Silicon Valley data center is expected to deliver up to 9MW of critical power which will be available upon full build.
“We are excited to continue to expand our presence in Silicon Valley and the greater San Francisco Bay Area. The region is as systemically important as ever and we’re seeing strong demand from the world’s most influential companies,” says Nicholas Laag, CEO of Prime Data Centers.
The new data center at 1231 Comstock is sited close to Prime Data Centers’ facility at 1111 Comstock Street and another Prime’s 2175 Martin Avenue property which was announced last year for the development of a 9MW data center. The company stated that its geographically concentrated activity indicates optimism in the future of the wholesale data center market in Silicon Valley. In addition, Prime plans to make more announcements about additional Silicon Valley projects in the coming months.
Also targeting other markets, Prime announced last year that it is expanding its presence into the U.S. Midwest market with a planned investment of up to $1 Billion for the development of a hyperscale data center campus in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.
The Chicago campus is expected to deliver 150MW of IT load capacity upon full build, housing three data center facilities with a total of over 750,000 square foot space. With this project, Prime looks forward to delivering the largest data center campus in the Chicago – O’Hare market.
As announced, Prime will begin construction on the latest Silicon Valley facility in the second half of 2023.
