WBJ: COPT Lands Amazon for Ashburn Data Center
The regional business publication identifies the online retail giant as anchor tenant.
Online retailer Amazon.com Inc. will serve as the anchor tenant for Maryland-based Corporate Office Properties Trust’s (COPT) 34-acre data center site near Redskins Park, according to a report by the Washington Business Journal.
COPT announced this past week that it purchased the site near Loudoun County and Gloucester parkways in Ashburn from St. John Properties for $14 million, with plans for a little more than 300,000-square-feet of data center uses. COPT’s first phase includes a 200,000-square-foot building.
