CoreSite Opens Huge Data Center in Reston, VA

CoreSite Realty officially opened the second building on its Reston campus, a new 198,000 square foot facility, of which the 50,000 square-foot Phase 1 turn-key data center capacity was leased in Q4 2014 to a single anchor tenant.

Construction has now commenced on Phase 2 of the VA2 build-out, totaling an additional approximate 50,000 NRSF, with completion anticipated in Q2 2015.

CoreSite’s Reston campus provides access to nearly 60 network, cloud and IT service providers, including interconnection with AWS Direct Connect.

“We are pleased to open the first phase of VA2 fully leased to an anchor customer, consistent with our strategy for the facility,” said Tom Ray, CEO of CoreSite. “Further, we believe that the nearly 60 network, cloud and IT service providers already deployed at our Reston campus combine with our market-leading network ecosystem at DC1 and the scalability offered at VA2 to enable CoreSite to offer one of the most comprehensive solutions in the region for performance-sensitive customer requirements.”
