Sabey signs first tenant at Intergrate.Ashburn campus
Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties said Wednesday that the first of three buildings at its data center campus in Ashburn is fully operational. Intergate.Ashburn is a 900,000-square-foot, 70+ megawatt (MW) campus located on 38 acres in the heart of what is the East Coast’s data center backbone in Loudoun County.
Sabey also announced that it has signed its first tenant at Intergate.Ashburn. The tenant will occupy a 1.8 MW, 11,988-square-foot quadrant at Building C. The building represents the first phase of the campus development.
Located a short distance from Washington, D.C., Intergate.Ashburn is in the busiest and fastest-growing data center market in the country. The campus expands Sabey’s national data center footprint and provides direct proximity to all network exchanges in the region.
“Enterprises and institutions around the country want a data center presence in the Washington, D.C., corridor, a densely populated hub ideally situated to serve the East Coast population and with an aggregation of carriers that make Virginia virtually indispensable to many data center users,” Robert Rockwood, the president of Sabey Data Centers, said in a statement.
Rockwood cited the area’s low power costs — about 5.5 cents per kilowatt-hour — and available tax incentives as reasons why “Ashburn is one of the most cost-effective locations for data centers in the United States.”
Cameron Richardson, director of leasing at Intergate.Ashburn, said, “The Intergate.Ashburn campus already is served by seven fully operational carriers, with additional carriers in the pipeline. Services available today include dark fiber, cloud on-ramps, direct internet access DIA) and point-to-point circuits … Our objective is to provide a broad choice of carriers and services to support our customers’ business models with flexibility and efficiency. ”
The company expects to attract tenants from the government, technology, social media and health care sectors, as well as content and cloud service providers.
