Peterson Cos., Denver firm to develop massive data center campus. But not in Loudoun.

WASHINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL – The Peterson Cos. is partnering with a Denver-based data center developer to construct a massive data center campus in Prince William County, the duo jointly announced Wednesday.

Fairfax-based Peterson and Stack Infrastructure will tackle the 125-acre project together, ultimately delivering 250 megawatts of capacity in 4 million square feet of build-to-suit facilities. The first phase, the two said, will cover 25 acres and 700,000 square feet of data centers, and could begin to come online as soon as late 2020.

Four pad sites are already cleared and graded, said Taylor Chess, Peterson’s president of development.

“Northern Virginia continues to be the biggest, most important data center market in the world, and we are excited to partner with Peterson on this opportunity”, Brian Cox, Stack CEO, said in a statement. “Prince William County offers robust power infrastructure and low latency connectivity within one of the densest concentrations of fiber networks in the world.”
