Data center developer and operator Yondr Group, has just broken ground on the first phase of its new data center campus in Loudoun, Northern Virginia.

As designed, the Northern Virginia campus will feature two data center buildings and deliver 96MW of total capacity upon full build, with room for further expansion.

This groundbreaking follows the acquisition of the 270 acre Loudoun site in 2021 through a partnership with JK Land Holdings, a land procurement firm.

Launched in partnership with JK Land Holdings, LLC (JKLH), the new data center campus is Yondr’s first data center in Northern Virginia as well as the Americas. This project further strengthens Yondr’s commitment to delivering data centers across five continents by 2024.

“Northern Virginia is the nation’s data center corridor and a strategic metro where we see some of the largest cloud capacity demands. This groundbreaking marks our first facility in the Americas and we are looking forward to serving our clients’ capacity needs in this region,” said Eanna Murphy, COO, Global Design and Construction at Yondr Group.

“This project is located in one of the most sought-after data center locations in the world and we are looking forward to our continued work with Yondr as we get this project off the ground,” said Chuck Kuhn, CEO, JK Land Holdings, LLC.

Yondr is also developing a 200MW hyperscale campus in Johor, Malaysia which was announced in March. For this project, Yondr Group acquired 72.8 acres of land from TPM Technopark Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Johor Corporation.

This Northern Virginia project also joins other Yondr’s facilities which are under construction including a 40MW data center facility in Frankfurt, Germany, precisely located in the City of Bischofsheim; a data center campus in Slough which will have a total capacity of 100MW upon full build; and other ongoing projects across Berlin, Indonesia, and India.
