Santa Clara at Heart of Data Center Demand
The aquisition is the latest by Digital Realty Trust, which aquired a shell building of 40,300 square feet earlier this month, according to Web Host Industry Review. Scott Peterson, senior VP of acquisition for Digital Realty Trust noted:
Combined with the acquisition of 1725 Comstock announced earlier this month, we can continue to incrementally build out and deliver turn-key space in Santa Clara to meet the strong demand in Silicon Valley for our data center product. The buildings are strategically located on a single 4.2 acre parcel across the street from our Space Park campus, allowing us to achieve meaningful economies of scale as we expand our footprint in this important, supply-constrained market
The company plans to build out the six data center PODs in two phases, with the first being operational by the first quarter of 2011.
