CoreSite Expands Data Center Footprint in Denver and Silicon Valley
CoreSite, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider and a subsidiary of American Tower Corporation, today announced the continued expansion of its Denver and Silicon Valley data center campuses, to meet the dynamic digital infrastructure requirements of public and private cloud providers, enterprises, network, and service providers. As a leading interconnection provider, CoreSite is adding its ninth data center in Santa Clara, California. With the addition of the new 240,000-square-foot, purpose-built data center – known as SV9 – the company’s newest Silicon Valley data center campus will have 1.179 million total square feet of data center space. Located at 2915 Stender Way, SV9 will offer 34 megawatts of IT load with a new utility substation onsite. CoreSite has also completed the design and permitting process to add 3,420 square feet and 500 kilowatts of IT load to its downtown Denver (DE1) data center at 910 15th Street, one of the most interconnected data centers in the Denver metro region.
Strategically located in downtown Denver, CoreSite’s DE1 and DE2 data center facilities deliver two network-rich data centers and the region’s largest peering exchange. CoreSite sits at the nexus of where the networks meet in the Rocky Mountain region and is home to a rich interconnected ecosystem of nearly 150 organizations comprised of cloud, network and IT service providers.
CoreSite’s DE1 facility is an ideal destination for any performance-sensitive requirements and is a marketing-leading network-dense asset for connectivity needs, including native cloud onramps, i.e., direct connection, to the top cloud providers. The expansion at DE1 will increase the total square footage in CoreSite’s Denver campus to 37,420.
Silicon Valley Market Expansion
The CoreSite Silicon Valley footprint – spanning Milpitas, San Jose and Santa Clara – is currently comprised of eight operational data centers and offers one of the largest retail and wholesale campuses in the Bay Area with a natively dense network and robust cloud ecosystem.
The massive scale of the Santa Clara campus is coupled with the availability of native cloud onramps in the heart of some of the largest concentrations of internet and technology companies in the world. These qualities uniquely enable CoreSite to support a broad range of colocation use cases from enterprises and digital platforms. Through the Open Cloud Exchange® (OCX), CoreSite’s leading software-defined networking platform, customers utilize the superior interconnection needed to reach new markets, rapidly scale on-demand, reduce total cost of operation and accelerate IT modernization. The OCX is uniquely suited to meet the most demanding compute needs of digital platforms with a rich ecosystem of 205 cloud, network and IT service providers available.
SV9 Construction Milestones Achieved
Construction of SV9 has progressed since securing building permits in 2022. CoreSite has completed building the structural steel and concrete pours for the facility. Despite experiencing historically rainy and windy weather conditions in the Santa Clara area, the company remains on schedule for completion of SV9 in 2024 with its first phase ready for occupancy in Q1 2024.
“With expansions in both our Silicon Valley and Denver markets, CoreSite is delivering on our long-term strategy to meet the ever-increasing data center capacity demands and interconnection requirements of our valued customers,” said Juan Font, president and CEO, CoreSite and SVP of U.S. Tower. “Our strong financial backing by Fortune 375 wireless infrastructure leader, American Tower, and private equity partner, Stonepeak, means we have the direct access to capital required to grow with our customers to anticipate and build solutions for their future needs.”
Construction of SV9 is expected to be complete in 2024, preleasing is available now. CoreSite is pre-leasing the DE1 expansion, which will be available for customers in 2H 2023.
