Herndon, Virginia-based EdgeConneX could build a data center in the Beacon Station business park in western Miami-Dade County.
The company filed a pre-application with county officials concerning the 6.25-acre site near the southwest corner of Northwest 106th Street and Northwest 112th Avenue. The vacant land is located directly west of the gas station at 10550 N.W. 112th Ave. The property is currently owned by PFR Investments LLC, managed by Juan M. Fayen and Juan G. Ramos in Doral.
EdgeConneX’s two-story data center would total 145,700 square feet and have 60 parking spaces. The facility would include an operations office, IT equipment, servicers, network gear, racks and switch gear.
This would be the third data center in the Miami market for EdgeConnX, but it would be the largest by far, as the current facilities total 65,500 and 32,000 square feet, according to the company’s website.
Data centers help companies boost their internet connectivity and data storage, which are both crucial to growing the local technology secter.
