High-efficiency Water Usage Effectiveness (“WUE”) and Power Usage Effectiveness (“PUE”)

The Northern Virginia region is devoid of natural disasters and has a mild climate, which provides an ideal environment in which to house mission-critical IT infrastructure. The location is within a low-latency distance from both New York and Richmond, the two main subsea cable landing stations serving the MAREA subsea cable and provides a strategic, cost-effective market from which to serve the east coast of the US and link to Europe. Further, with an international airport (Dulles) located in the center of Loudoun County, the area is easily accessible from most regions.

Gainesville Crossing is in discussions with several Investment grade, hyperscale tenants who are evaluating space needs across the campus.


GCDC Building 1 has an anticipated core/shell construction completion by June 2023, with the earliest data hall Ready for Service (“RFS”) date in August 2023.

GCDC Building 2 can begin vertical construction as early as September 2023.
