Bolstered by strong demand for data center services from government clients, Terremark announced it has secured 27 acres of land next to its campus in the Capital Region to make room for more data center construction.

The Miami-headquartered company said the $5 million land acquisition next to its Network Access Point (NAP) campus near Culpeper, Va., gives it the ability to add at least 250,000 square feet of high-quality data center space. The additional land will essentially allow Terremark to double the data center capacity at its campus.

“With the outstanding success and explosive growth of the NAP of the Capital Region, acquiring the land adjacent to the existing campus was a vital step in securing our position to continue meeting the strong demand for Terremark’s services among federal customers and large multinational companies,” Manuel D. Medina, Terremark’s chief executive officer, said in a statement.

Terremark announced in April that it would begin construction on its third data center at the capital region campus. The new 50,000 square foot data center has a $45 million price tag and Terremark says it expects to begin customer deployments in the third quarter of 2011. About 65% of the data center space at the campus, including the third facility that is being built, has been leased, the company said.

Along with the data center facilities, Terremark recently unveiled a headquarters building for the campus featuring a 150-seat auditorium built to the federal government’s physical security standards for sensitive information.

Terremark provides co-location, hosting, disaster recovery and cloud-based services.
