Sabey begins construction of North Virginia data center

Groundbreaking ceremony at Sabey’s new 900,000 square foot data center in Northern Virginia scheduled for Tuesday, May 24

American wholesale data center specialist Sabey is planning to open a new facility in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.

With ’Intergate.Ashburn’ site, Sabey is establishing a presence in a second major urban area on the US East Coast, following the construction of its Manhattan data center tower.

Sabey’s other US locations are found in the Washington state cities of Seattle, Columbia and Quincy, providing more than 3 million square feet of data center space in total.

Leasing underway

The site will host a powered shell data center and Sabey’s turn-key colocation project, Sabey Managed Modules.

Leasing for the site is underway, with capacity becoming available from Q4 2016, the company said.

The event will include the hoisting and installation of the project’s first vertical steel beam at the site in Northern Virginia.

The state, centred around a major fiber node at Ashburn, is the largest data center market in the US, according to a report from 451 Research and real estate company Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), published in November 2015.

Northern Virginia has overtaken New York to take 20 percent of the overall US data center market, the research suggested.

  • The Green Grid held our Global Technical meeting last week, and was in Ashburn, VA. Since AOL moved in their in early 1990s, there have been many Data Center owners/operators moved to this Loundon County.

    They built a secondary water system where Chiller Water is piped from the treated household (ordinary waste water), and made it into the industrial human touchable, usable to Farming level water system, and also it is recycled again and again.

    The intake from the River is less and waste water dumpped to the river is less, and those hooked up Data Centers are using cheaper Industrial but yet non-portable water.

    TGG had a tour of this Water Recycle plant, and also at the TC meeting talked a lot about Liquid Cooling and Utility service feeding into the Data Center. TGG is bounding back up with many activities!!

    As US Governments contracts growing, the greater Washington DC are, near Dulleus International Airport is one of the very fast growing area all of ICT Industiries, Data Centers and residential complexs, along Washington Metro Railway expanding to the county.
