Prime Data Centers Builds New 33MW Data Center in Los Angeles

Prime Data Centers

The inauguration of a new three-story, 261,000-square-foot data center in Vernon, California has been announced by data center developer/operator Prime Data Centers. Prime will also build a 49.5MVA substation to service the new location. The finished plant will provide tenants with up to 33MW of critical power.

Power delivery is provided by Vernon’s municipally owned and operated electric utility (VPU). VPU, which has been recognized as one of the most dependable utilities in the country, will provide 66kV service to Prime’s new substation. VPU’s lowest commercial rate, which would be among the region’s lowest commercial utility prices, would benefit Prime and its clients.

This new carrier-neutral data center facility in the heart of downtown Los Angeles provides tenants with an opportunity to obtain wholesale dark fiber in bulk to all five of downtown Los Angeles’ central interconnection hubs: One Wilshire, 600 W. Seventh Street, 530 W. Sixth Street, 900 N. Alameda, and 818 W. Seventh Street.

Access to Carriers and Service Providers

This opportunity would give Prime’s tenants access to hundreds of carriers and service providers, allowing them to leverage existing nearby installations, extend existing networks, and expand content and compute delivery into one of the world’s largest Internet and telecommunications interconnection hubs.

“As our first data center development in southern California, this bolsters our strong presence across the rest of the state,” said Nicholas Laag, CEO and Founder of Prime Data Centers. “Los Angeles is a thriving global connectivity market, and our new hyperscale Vernon data center will be right in the middle of it all.”

The new Prime Vernon location will have dedicated offices, storage, and staging areas, as well as secure onsite parking. The facility is expected to be completed in Q4 2023, according to Prime.
