MDC Data Centers (formerly McAllen Data Centers) is developing a data center in San Diego, California.

The company, which focuses on providing colocation and interconnection services from facilities along the US-Mexico border, this week announced its new San Diego facility will be ready to begin operations in Q2 of 2023.

The new location, at 7014 Manya Cir, was announced in partnership with Mexican telco Vívaro Telecom (formerly Marcatel). MDC said the facility will provide redundant access to fiber-crossing routes connecting San Diego to the state of Baja California in Mexico via two independent routes through Otay Mesa and San Ysidro.

Specifications weren’t shared. Google Maps suggests the property was most recently a warehouse/manufacturing facility used by packaging design company O.A.P. Packaging Inc.

“At Vívaro Telecom, we believe that this new facility is a reflection of MDC Data Centers’ commitment to neutrality and customer-centricity. It will expand the company’s unique business advocacy to a new strategic market, creating new business opportunities for all participants in the ecosystem,” said Gustavo Mario De la Garza Flores, CEO of Vívaro.

MDC currently operates five facilities along the US-Mexico border in McAllen (x2 including the recently acquired Chase Tower carrier hotel), Laredo, and El Paso in Texas, and Nogales in Arizona.

As well as San Diego, the company is developing another facility in Eagle Pass, Texas, that is due live later this year.

Announced in May 2022, the Eagle pass site is also being developed in partnership with Vivaro Telecom (formerly Marcatel) as well as Mexican ISP Fibranet.
