Iron Mountain has announced that it is expanding the VA-2 facility to support the continued demands it receives from its new and existing customers in the market. The company stated that the data center investment will be over $350 million. $225 million of this investment will be the building alone. The development is expected to be finished in the first quarter of 2020.
Supervisor Jeanine Lawson said:
“I am pleased to see Iron Mountain expanding their capacity for data storage by moving into phase two of their building plan. As a pioneer in the data center industry, having Iron Mountain choose Prince William County over other Northern Virginia jurisdictions speaks volumes about the county’s successful economic development strategy. I look forward to continuing our work with Iron Mountain as both a business and community partner.”
Christina Winn, Executive Director, Prince William County Economic Development Department said:
“Iron Mountain is a change agent in the data center world. We’re proud to say it starts in Prince William County. In its Prince William County Campus, the data center leader has made space for data center customers to expand their footprint and provide office and storage space for more than 100 workers. This data center model brings more jobs into Prince William County and is beneficial for the industry, taxpayers, and commuters.”
