Chirisa offers former Capital One data centre in Virginia to hyperscalers

Chirisa Technology Parks, a subsidiary of Chirisa, is offering a former Capital One data center located at 1401 Meadowville Technology Pkwy outside Richmond, Virginia, to hyperscalers.

The 242,000 sq ft (22,480 sqm) facility has 18,270 sq ft of built-out white space, with 127,935 sq ft of future data hall shell space. The site includes 304 45u racks and 48 network cabinets. The facility has LEED Gold certification.

The data center was originally built for Capital One in 2013 with a $150 million investment in Chesterfield County. After Capital One exited the site, it was taken over by Chirisa’s subsidiary Digital Fortress, which relaunched the facility in May 2021.

The facility has day-one availability of 18,270 sq ft (1,700 sqm) and 4.1MW of capacity in a single data hall, with a 200,000 sq ft (18,500 sqm) shell core expansion space supporting up to 25MW, ready to deliver.

Chirisa Technology Parks was established in late 2022, and the company “moved the Richmond lease-up effort away from Digital Fortress”.

The plan is to lease the site directly to a hyperscaler or other single client, rather than multiple colo customers through Digital Fortress. The company will manage the site while CTP will develop it. The facility is also listed on LoopNet.

When fully built out, the 75-acre campus could reportedly support up to 500,000 sq ft (46,450 sqm) of floorspace and up to 100MW. The Chester facility is next door to a data center that previously hosted Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) infrastructure.

That facility was also recently up for sale after VITA exited the site last year.
