Nov 02, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Prime Data Centers has begun work on its Santa Clara data center in California. Located at 2175 Martin Ave, the three-story facility is on a 1.6-acre plot and is designed as a turnkey build-to-suit facility offering 80,000 square feet (7,430 sqm) of purpose-built data center space and 9MW with N+1 redundancy.

The facility, near the company's flagship 9MW facility at 1111 Comstock, is, as Chris Sumter, Executive Vice President of Acquisitions, Prime Data Centers, explains positioned "strategically" among the headquarters of some of the biggest tech companies in the world. Adding: "Silicon Valley is one of the most critical and tightest data center markets in the US, and the development and construction of Prime's SJC03 has been highly anticipated."

Jonathan Gibbs, Senior Vice President of Design and Construction Prime Data Centers, added: "Scarcity of available real estate in this world-leading market has made it difficult to realize wholesale data center opportunities, making this property even more desirable, especially considering the affordable power rates in a power-constrained market."
