Prime Data Centers lands 12MW anchor tenant for Los Angeles facility

Jan. 9, 2023
New transaction secures twelve megawatts at Prime’s Los Angeles data center LAX-01 for delivery in Q4 of 2024.

Global wholesale data center provider Prime Data Centers (Vernon, Calif.) last month announced that it has completed a pre-lease with a large, publicly-traded technology company, billed by a press release as "a global tech giant [who] will use the unique connectivity options and wholesale capacity" at the Prime LAX-01 facility to optimize experience for its regional user base.

The transaction secures twelve megawatts at Prime’s Los Angeles data center for delivery in Q4 of 2024. The new customer will use the capacity to optimize content delivery for its growing user base in the Southern California region.

Nicholas Laag, CEO of Prime Data Centers, said:

“On behalf of everyone at Prime, I would like to welcome our newest customer to the Los Angeles market. Demand is strong at Prime LAX-01 thanks to its unique combination of reliable, wholesale data center capacity and access to hundreds of local, national and global networks. This creates an ideal data center environment for cloud providers, Internet businesses, technology companies, and the content-centric enterprise.”

Prime LAX-01 profile

LAX-01, Prime’s first Southern California data center, features a three-story design, 261,000 square feet and 33 megawatts of critical IT load capacity. The data center offers a desirable combination of available wholesale power and easy access to hundreds of networks in the capacity-constrained downtown LA market.

Prime has entered into an agreement with a national carrier to provide dark fiber services to any LAX-01 customer at low-cost, wholesale rates, linking each of the five downtown LA carrier hotels and more than 300 carriers to the facility. The new agreement enables hyperscale Prime customer connectivity requirements that may number in the hundreds of fiber pairs.

The LAX-01 development is part of Prime’s global expansion roadmap that projects 2.4 gigawatts upon completion, with 159 megawatts delivered in California alone. The company said it is supporting the initiative with a focus on talent acquisition that has yielded 163% employee growth in 2022, and 159% growth in projects for 2023. 

Prime partners withcloud providers, colocation companies, Internet businesses, and the tech-savvy enterprise to enhance application performance and customer experience through global data center development and optimization. Visit for more information.
