The Prince William County Department of Economic Development and Iron Mountain announced the expansion of Iron Mountain’s Manassas data center campus on Wellington Road to support continued demand from both new and existing customers in the market. A press release states:
Iron Mountain opened its first building on the campus, VA-1, in September 2017, investing approximately $100 million to establish a presence in Northern Virginia, the largest data center market in the world, and stated they expected to invest over $350 million in the campus. This new building alone represents an incremental $225 million when fully built out. Iron Mountain’s expansion in Manassas supports continued economic growth in Prince William County, as well as contributing to job growth in the county. At full build-out of VA-2, Iron Mountain will employ nearly 50 people at the campus.
Iron Mountain is uniquely positioned to provide its customers and vendors with leasable office and storage space, incorporating this value-added offering into its design plans. This allows customers to be close to their mission-critical IT assets in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Currently at VA-1, on an average day, nearly 100 of Iron Mountain’s customers and vendors work out of that building. Iron Mountain anticipates this trend to continue with more than double the amount of office and storage space available to its customers at the new building.
Iron Mountain currently expects to complete development on the first phase of VA-2 in the first quarter of 2020.
