Vantage Data Centers has bought a 6.7-acre plot of land next to its Santa Clara campus in California for $40 million.
According to the Mercury News, citing documents filed on February 19, Vantage Data Centers paid $40m to buy a building at 2590 Walsh Ave. in Santa Clara through an affiliate company.
Commercial property databases show 2590 Walsh as a one-story building constructed in 1980 totaling 113,600 square feet (10,500 sqm) on a 6.7-acre parcel of land.

Vantage already has two data centers – CA12 and CA14 – on Walsh Avenue, as part of the six on its Santa Clara campus, with the other four on a neighboring street. The 2590 plot sits between the other two Vantage properties on that street.
Vantage’s Santa Clara campus currently measures 21 acres, offering more than 335,000 square feet (31,100 sq m) of data center space and 77MW of capacity. Facebook is reportedly a major customer on the campus.
