QTS Richmond: QTS files plans to expand Richmond campus in White Oak Technology Park

Mar 13, 2019 | Posted by Eric Bell

A development plan was filed in March by an entity tied to QTS Data Centers for new two single-story data center buildings totaling 710,500 square feet on county-owned land in Sandston’s White Oak Technology Park, near Interstates 64 and 295.

Dubbed in planning documents as “Project Isaac,” the development is being fast-tracked through the Henrico planning department.

The development would rise on about 73 acres fronting Portugee Road, with 50-foot buffers between QTS’ existing 1.3 million-square-foot facility to the north and the Facebook data center campus that’s under construction east of the site.

An interior rendering highlights about 17,000 square feet of office space in each of the buildings, with the remaining dedicated to several data halls – large open spaces that house a variety of computer server storage and network systems.

"Project Isaac" land sits just South of QTS and West of the Facebook campus
