Gainesville, Virginia is set to become the home of a new data center park. NTT Global Data Centers, the world's third largest operator-independent data center operator, recently announced that it has acquired a 103.3 acre parcel in the Gainesville submarket of Prince William County, Virginia. This new 336 megawatt and more than 2 million square feet hyperscale data center campus will become the company's largest single campus in both Northern Virginia and North America. The new data center park is expected to bring a number of benefits to the area. It will create jobs and provide an economic boost to the region.
It will also provide a reliable source of energy for businesses and residents in the area. Additionally, it will help to reduce carbon emissions by providing clean energy sources. The new data center park is part of a larger trend of data centers being built in the region. Northern Virginia is quickly becoming one of the most popular locations for data centers due to its proximity to Washington D. C., its access to reliable power sources, and its favorable tax incentives.
In addition to NTT's new campus, there are several other large data centers being built in the area, including Amazon Web Services' Ashburn campus and Microsoft's Loudoun County campus. The new data center park in Gainesville is expected to be completed by 2021. It will be a major asset for the region and will help to further solidify Northern Virginia's position as one of the premier locations for data centers in the United States.
