CyrusOne announced that the second data center on its massive campus outside of Phoenix is operational.
The company said it had broken ground the 120,000-square-foot data center construction project only in May, saying then that it would house 60,000 square feet of data center space and provide up to 12 megawatts of power. Now, 30,000 square feet of that space has been commissioned and pre-leased.
Phoenix turned out to be a hot market for Carrollton, Texas-based CyrusOne, which entered the market in 2012. The company said in May it was accelerating data center construction at the campus in Chandler because it had closed a 40,000-square-foot deal at its first facility there with an unnamed technology company.
The property is master-planned for seven buildings. At full build-out, it has the potential to house about 1 million square feet of data center space, the company said.
“We’ve seen strong demand in our Phoenix market,” CyrusOne CEO Gary Wojtaszek said in a statement. “We completely leased our first facility in 18 months, built our second facility on the campus, and pre-leased 100 percent of what we just commissioned, all in less than two years.”
