CyrusOne and CoreSite have both had data center final designs approved for projects in Santa Clara, California.

BizJournal reported that at a Development Review Hearing on June 28 the city granted permission for two data centers in the city to move ahead to the next stage of applications.

One of the data centers is planned for 2600 De La Cruz Blvd. The site of a former paperboard mill, CyrusOne Inc. is proposing a project known as the Sequoia Data Center.

The company, through Cl-Santa Clara LLC, is proposing to construct a four-story, 703,450 square foot data center building and back-up energy generating facility with a generation capacity of up to 96.5MW on the 15-acre site.

In its most recent earnings report, CyrusOne said it had 23 acres of land available in Santa Clara for future development.

While the project wouldn’t require rezoning to go ahead, BizJournal reports the company still needs to obtain a building permit before it can begin construction. The City of Santa Clara approved the project's final design at the hearing.

The second facility was CoreSite’s SV9 facility. The company has applied to develop a 48MW, 250,000 square foot (23,200 sqm) four-story data center – known as SV9 – along with a substation on the site at 2905 Stender Way, close to the company’s existing SV3, SV4, SV5, SV6, SV7, and SV8 data centers.

A decision by the city’s Planning Commission was delayed in April, but the Santa Clara City Council unanimously voted to approve CoreSite's rezoning request at its June 15 meeting. The city approved the final design of its Stender Way project during the July 28 hearing, but is still reviewing the associated building permit application.

The company has already begun demolishing the existing structure on the project site.
