PowerHouse Data Centers, a next-generation data center company that offers technical real estate solutions for hyperscalers and has longstanding relationships in Northern Virginia, announced plans this week to build six data centers representing 2.1 million square feet of data center space in Data Center Alley.
PowerHouse is meeting the ever growing needs of hyperscalers in this market by offering build-to-suit, powered shell and full turnkey data center developments at scale.
PowerHouse’s Arcola Data Center project, set for completion in 2026 will provide 120 MW of max capacity power, with 80 MW of critical power for a two-building facility with 614,300 sq. ft. of developable space and a data hall area of 364,100 sq. ft. of space. PowerHouse’s data center campuses also include the site of the former AOL headquarters on Pacific Boulevard in Ashburn known as PowerHouse Pacific, which will host three state-of-the-art data center build-to-suit data centers for hyperscale tenants. Other projects under construction include PowerHouse ABX-1 at Beaumeade, which is bringing a 265,000 sq. ft. two-story powered data center online in 2023.
The construction is also backed by a $1 billion joint venture commitment with AREP and Harrison Street to develop and construct world-class data centers. Harrison Street has invested approximately $2.4 billion in digital assets that include powered data centers, strategic colocations and dark fiber. Harrison Street has clients in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America.
“We are excited to offer a new data center solutions company to meet the rising demand of hyperscalers in Ashburn and change the landscape of Data Center Alley,” says Doug Fleit, Co-founder and CEO of AREP and PowerHouse Data Centers. “We provide hyperscalers a unique competitive advantage of an accelerated speed to market while overcoming the challenge of a fierce ‘data center land run’.”
