SDC Capital Partners Acquires 280-Acre Data Center Development Site in Northern Virginia
SDC Capital Partners, LLC (“SDC”) a specialized private equity firm focused on the IT and Communications infrastructure sectors, today announced that its affiliated investment fund has acquired a 280-acre data center development site in Loudoun County, Virginia.  The site is one of the last remaining campus-scale development properties within northern Virginia’s “data center alley” region that has emerged in recent years as the global epicenter for data center development.
Located less than 4,000 feet south of the region’s primary interconnection hub, the property enjoys rich network connectivity and robust utility service owing in part to its proximity to existing transmission-voltage infrastructure that can enable expedited delivery of dedicated on-site substations.   The site also affords access to Loudon Water’s reclaimed water system, which can be leveraged to reduce costs in connection with provision of cooling.  

SDC will pursue a range of options with respect to developing the site.

“We are thrilled to acquire this unique property and look forward to working with our partners and Loudoun County to optimize its development,” said Todd Aaron, SDC’s Managing Partner.  “For end-users or operators seeking contiguous, hyper-scale development capabilities, this property is truly unrivaled within the region.”
