Stack Infrastructure plans to build a 125-acre data center campus in Prince William County, Northern Virginia.

Developed in partnership with real estate firm Peterson Companies, the first phase will span 25 acres and deliver 700,000 square feet of data center space with 72MW of critical capacity at the end of 2020.

Focused on large data center users, the build-to-suit Manassas campus could reach 250MW of critical load and four million square feet of data center space.

“Northern Virginia continues to be the largest, most important data center market in the world, and we are excited to partner with Peterson on this opportunity,” Brian Cox, Stack CEO, said.

“Prince William County offers robust power infrastructure and low latency connectivity within one of the densest concentrations of fiber networks in the world. This, in combination with the low total costs of ownership available in this market, enables us to offer an especially attractive value proposition to clients.”

Stack was created at the start of 2019, using the wholesale assets of data center firms T5 and Infomart. It then raised $850m to embark on an ambitious expansion effort, acquiring a data center in New Albany, Ohio, expanding its Portland campus, and starting work on a new Chicago facility. Last week the company said it would build a 32MW data center in San Jose.

“This new development exemplifies our ongoing focus on ensuring that Stack stands ready to rapidly deliver capacity to our clients in key markets,” Matt VanderZanden, the company's chief strategy officer, said.

“In partnership with one of the most experienced developers in the DC region, Peterson, and with four pad-ready sites in the Prince William County data center overlay zone, we believe the ability to offer large scale build-to-suit projects to support immediate demand is compelling.”
