PISCATAWAY, NJ-Work is set to begin on a new 300,000-sf data center on a 38-acre site at 101 Possumtown Rd. here. The speculative project is being done by Whale Ventures LLC, an affiliate of the Washington, DC-based DuPont Fabros Technology Inc.

“It will be developed in two phases,” says a DuPont Fabros spokesman. “It is anticipated that ground-up development of phase one will be completed in 2009. We anticipate that it will comprise approximately 300,000 gross sf and 171,200 raised sf, and will have an aggregate critical load of 36.4 megawatts.”

Whale Ventures recently acquired the former site of a demolished GlaxoSmithKline facility from that company for an undisclosed price. In that transaction, the buyer was represented by VP Colton Brown and first VP Drew Persson of GVA Williams NJ, Parsippany. The seller was represented by brokers from Jones Lang LaSalle.

“This location, in the heart of Central New Jersey, is a great site for a data center,” Brown says. “It’s a much-anticipated development.”

The project will be the sixth for DuPont Fabros, a development company that specializes in data centers, joining four properties in Virginia and one in Illinois. The company is also currently under contract to buy a site in California for another project.
