CoreSite can now build an incremental 50 megawatts of capacity in
Reston to support demand

CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure,
reliable, high-performance data
and interconnection
solutions across the U.S., today announced that it has received final
approval from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors to expand the
scope of its planned development of its data center campus in Reston,

With the approval of CoreSite's application to modify zoning
requirements, it can now build an incremental 289,000 net rentable
square feet, or an incremental 50 megawatts, of data center capacity for
a total of approximately 900,000 net rentable square feet, or more than
100 megawatts, at full campus build out, to support current and future
customer demand in the largest data center market in the world. In
addition, CoreSite customers can take advantage of the Virginia Data
Center Retail Sales & Use Tax Exemption program towards the purchase of
computer equipment and enabling software. CoreSite is the first, and
only, data center provider to qualify in Fairfax County.

CoreSite acquired the 21.75-acre light industrial / flex office park in
November 2016 to expand its existing Reston, Virginia data center
campus. Upon full build out of its Reston expansion, CoreSite's Northern
Virginia data center footprint will comprise almost 1.4 million square
feet, extending CoreSite's position as a leading multi-tenant data
center provider in Northern Virginia. CoreSite's Reston expansion will
leverage off of the strong position it has established at
its Reston campus with over 175 customers, including access to more than
60 networks and over 50 cloud and IT service providers.

cloud-enabled campus in Reston, through which Fairfax County enterprises
have access to world class, cost-effective IT infrastructure and cloud
products, and through which clouds, networks and content companies
service the Northern Virginia community," said Juan Font, Senior Vice
President of General Management of CoreSite. "Our type of data center
campus provides a unique community in which regional technology
companies and enterprises with digital services can grow and scale
