Located at 3 Boulden Circle in New Castle within the Boulden Interchange Park, the facility offers more than 30,000 square feet (2,790 sqm) of raised floor to support the immediate needs of customers and 8MW of capacity.

The seller and selling price weren’t shared.

According to a previous LoopNet listing, the 60,000 sq ft (5,575 sqm) facility was built in 1987 and later refurbished for data center use. Online listings suggest the site was previously occupied by Honeywell.

DāSTOR said the data center, located in New Castle County along the Interstate-95 corridor, provides multiple connectivity options from various network providers, suitable for cloud providers, enterprises, and technology firms. The site features 2N+1 UPS redundancy and N+1 cooling redundancy.

Kevin Mulqueen, CEO of DāSTOR, said: "We are excited about this strategic expansion into New Castle, DE, which supports the growing demand for our services. Our commitment to providing straightforward, adaptable solutions enables our clients to leverage the latest in AI and cloud services, supporting our ongoing growth and scalability.”

Founded in 2021 by Crown Castle’s former president of colocation, DāSTOR now offers services from five data centers across Pennsylvania and Delaware. These include network services, colocation, storage, private cloud, disaster recovery, and backup services.

Tom Borgers, managing director of data center operations at Dāstor, added: "This expansion strengthens our ability to meet the evolving needs of our clients with enhanced connectivity and security, affirming our commitment to delivering cutting-edge and reliable data solutions.”

The company launched after acquiring four data centers: One each in Wilmington, Delaware, and Reading, Pennsylvania; and two in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

The Wilmington and Reading facilities were acquired from IPR Secure. One of the facilities in King of Prussia, at 3400 Horizon Drive, was acquired from US colocation provider DataBridge Sites.

Honeywell announced plans for a data center in New Castle back in 2006 amid plans to consolidate its IT operations from 400 locations down to two; the New Castle facility alongside a site in Phoenix, Arizona.

Honeywell operates a data center in Colorado that hosts its quantum computer hardware.
