Equinix purchased four parcels of land spanning 34.5 acres in Loudon County, Virginia, for USD 34.5 million. The land is close to Equinix's current Ashburn data centre campus. The acquisition of this property will provide Equinix with room to build multiple new greenfield International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres in this densely interconnected location. The acquisition of the Ashburn property is a continuation of Equinix's strategy to purchase land and buildings to increase ownership of Equinix assets.
