Prospective purchasers and lessees can access a data center in Chesterfield County, Virginia. JLL is offering for lease or sale at 11751 Meadowville Lane in Chester, south of Richmond. The Virginia IT agency had been based there until it left last year. The 192,600 sq ft facility, which was constructed in 2007 and is situated on 28 acres, has 49,500 sq ft of raised laying and an IT load of 5-7MW. Comcast and Verizon both offer fiber services. A price has not been specified. The site is powered by two Dominion Power substations – Enon (50MVA) and Tyler (45MVA) – equipped with three 2.25 MW generators and space for three more 2.25 MW generators. The structure contains 127,300 square feet of office space and 15,300 square feet of mechanical space.

The Commonwealth Enterprise Solutions Center (CESC), which provided services to many state agencies, replaced the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA), which had previously occupied the space. The agency's contract at the location expired in June of last year, and it was about to relocate to a new office complex in North Chesterfield. Meanwhile, the IT infrastructure had been transferred to QTS facilities in Richmond, with a backup location in Prince William County's Manassas. All 65 Commonwealth executive agencies, along with 4,500 servers and applications, successfully migrated to a new data center in August 2022, as announced by the agency.
