(The full report)

Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owners and developers, announced today that DE-CIX, the world’s largest carrier- and data center-neutral Internet exchange, will launch a point-of-presence of its DE-CIX Apollon interconnection platform within Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s 1 million-square-foot facility at 375 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan.

DE-CIX’s award-winning Apollon platform provides the infrastructure for direct and settlement-free IP interconnection among Internet service providers (ISPs), known as peering. DE-CIX operates Internet exchanges in Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg, Dubai and New York. DE-CIX New York is already deployed in seven other data centers in New York in New Jersey and operates 111 access points in the metro area. Its expansion into Intergate.Manhattan is expected to take place within the next 30-60 days.

Sabey Data Centers’ proprietary IGX fiber network will provide DE-CIX with two redundant links on diverse routes to connect 375 Pearl Street and DE-CIX at 111 Eighth Avenue and 60 Hudson Street. The new DE-CIX POP allows all Sabey tenants to take advantage of DE-CIX’s Ethernet interconnection options. The connection is able to grow to multiple Terabits per second in the future.

Sabey Data Centers will use services from DE-CIX that include peering and Layer 2 connectivity to other New York City data centers.

John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “DE-CIX expressed its desire to be at 375 Pearl Street, and we have been working on our business agreement since January. This agreement clearly shows that both parties strongly support the growth of New York as an Internet hub for the region.”

“We are committed to growing DE-CIX New York to one of the world’s five largest Internet exchanges by 2020. Expanding to Sabey’s Intergate.Manhattan facility is part of our effort to establish a DE-CIX presence in every relevant data center and carrier hotel in this metro. DE-CIX New York is just a cross connect away from 99% of the providers in this metro market,” said Frank Orlowski, CMO for DE-CIX.

Mr. Sabey added, “We are very happy to partner with DE-CIX New York on this important market-enriching change. We are proud to be one of the first customers on the exchange, since having DE-CIX inside 375 Pearl leads to a larger choice of interconnection options for our customer base.”

Intergate.Manhattan represents an exponential expansion to New York City’s computing infrastructure capacity. The 32-story Intergate.Manhattan is also the most efficient data center in New York City, with brand new infrastructure and state-of-the-art climate control and electrical systems. The building’s Con Ed substation is on the second and third floors, eliminating a risk from storm surge damage that affected so many buildings in Lower Manhattan during Superstorm Sandy.

IntergateManattan window wall project

Sabey Data Center Properties has made up to 500,000 square feet office space available for leasing.

By Rayna Katz | New York

NEW YORK CITY—Sabey Data Center Properties has made available up to 500,000 square feet of high-security, technology-based office space at Intergate.Manhattan, the firm’s 1 million-square-foot Downtown facility at 375 Pearl St. Asking rents for the space are in the low $50s per square foot range.

Newmark Grubb Knight Frank is the exclusive leasing agent for Sabey Data Centers’ new office space. The NGKF team, led by David Falk, includes Danny Levine, Josh Gosin, and Jason Greenstein. NGKF’s Michael Morris leads the data center leasing team.

By combining a brand new, 40 megawatt data center with technology focused, high connectivity office space at a single location, Sabey plans to create what it’s calling a “digital factory” in Lower Manhattan that is designed to meet specifications of the Internet economy.

The company can re-clad up to 15 stories—almost the entire upper half of the building’s 32 stories—with a new window wall façade in order to take advantage of the property’s 360-degree, panoramic views of Manhattan island and New York harbor.  The new window walls will wrap around the north, east and south exposures of the building. The building improvements will include pre-built interior space. Construction will start this summer.

Says John Sabey, president of Sabey Data Centers, “Sabey has a 40-year history of building secure, high-uptime work spaces for the nation’s defense industry, medical research, bio-tech and healthcare, and financial services sectors.  Enterprise workforces that require an exceptionally high degree of physical protection and operational resiliency will be attracted to Intergate.Manhattan office space.”

Sabey Data Centers has designed the space as generator-backed, storm proof office space with larger than average clear heights and spectacular views. The space is being offered as a 24/7 workplace, ideally suited for technology, healthcare and biotech research or secure back office uses.

In addition, because the space is located within one of the nation’s largest data centers, it will offer virtually unlimited connectivity and capacity.  Office tenants will have on-site access to Sabey Data Centers’ Meet Me Rooms and multiple telecommunications carriers, as well as the ability to separate their data center needs into a purpose built data center in the same building.

“The Internet economy is writing a whole new set of specifications for office space,” Sabey adds. “We are proud to be among the first developers to meet the needs of businesses that require very high levels of security, connectivity and 24/7 operational assets for their work forces.”

By combining a brand new, 40 megawatt data center with technology focused, high connectivity office space at a single location, Sabey will create a “digital factory” in Lower Manhattan that is designed to meet specifications of the Internet economy.

The company can re-clad up to 15 stories, almost the entire upper half of the of the building’s 32 stories, with a new window wall façade in order to take advantage of the property’s 360-degree, panoramic views of Manhattan island and New York harbor.  The new window walls will wrap around the north, east and south exposures of the building.  Existing windows on the west façade will be uncovered from inside the structure.  The building improvements, designed by Sabey in-house, will include pre-built interior space, as well.  Construction will start in summer 2014.

John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “Sabey has a 40-year history of building secure, high-uptime work spaces for the nation’s defense industry, medical research, bio-tech and healthcare, and financial services sectors.  Enterprise workforces that require an exceptionally high degree of physical protection and operational resiliency will be attracted to Intergate.Manhattan office space.”

The new space offers interior design and finishes found in new, conventional office buildings as well as common area amenities such as conference rooms and pantries.  The building’s lower half will continue to operate as the region’s newest, purpose-built data center.

Mr. Sabey added, “The Internet economy is writing a whole new set of specifications for office space.  We are proud to be among the first developers to meet the needs of businesses that require very high levels of security, connectivity and 24/7 operational assets for their work forces.”

375 Pearl Street is located within walking distance of Wall Street, the New York City Civic Center and the culinary delights of Chinatown.  The closest subway stop is at City Hall within a five-minute walk.  The new Fulton Street mass transportation hub is less than a 10-minute walk from the property, with direct connections to most of the city’s subway system.

Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) is the exclusive leasing agent for Sabey Data Centers’ new office space at 375 Pearl Street.  The NGKF team, led by David Falk, includes Danny Levine, Josh Gosin, and Jason Greenstein.  NGKF’s Michael Morris leads the data center leasing team.

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) has launched an AMS-IX New York Point of Presence (PoP) at US-based Sabey Data Center Properties’ 1m sq ft Intergate.Manhattan facility.

AMS-IX said its New York exchange is the only distributed and neutral Open-IX certified Internet exchange in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area.

The exchange has already signed internet television network Netflix and wholesale carrier solutions provider IX Reach with a further 16 additional customers applying for a connection.

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group on Internet network operators, content owners and distributors that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model in the US.

Its aim is to reduce interconnection complexity and associated costs in the US.

SabeyDataCenter’s president John Sabey said Open-IX gives users and carriers the ability to connect and peer traffic in across the US and Europe.

“Offering more choice in the New York City market to carriers and customers is good for everyone,”  Sabey said.

Intergate.Manhattan is a 32-storey facility with “state-of-the-art” climate control and electrical systems.

It’s been a busy week for data center providers focused on the Open-IX opportunity. EvoSwitch, home of the first London Internet Exchange (LINX) node in the U.S., has received Data Center Technical Standards certification from Open-IX  for its WDC1 data center in northern Virginia. Chicago provider Continuum has also received Open-IX certification.

As a refresher, Open-IX is a different approach to existing Internet traffic exchanges. Rather than being concentrated in a few select facilities, Open-IX  adopts the European nonprofit model in which exchange operations are spread across multiple data centers within a geographic market. The goal is to create a new network of Internet Exchange Points housed in multiple neutral data center facilities that allow participants to interact and exchange content.

The first Open-IX certified facilities are now popping up. CyrusOne wasthe first to achieve certification. OIX standards are already being adopted by LINX, AMS-IX, Digital Realty, DuPont Fabros, Raging Wire, and many other data center and IX providers.

Open-IX created the Data Center Technical Standards to establish a recommended standard for Data Centers to support an Internet Exchange, as defined by the Open-­IX IXP Technical Standards. The standard also provides guidance for acceptable exceptions for pre-existing facilities.

AMS-IX

Sabey Data Center Properties and AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) have launched an AMS-IX New York point-of-presence within Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s 1 million-square-foot facility at 375 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan. The exchange has already signed Netflix, the world’s leading Internet television network, and IX Reach, a global leading provider of wholesale carrier solutions, as the first two customers for AMS-IX New York. At present, 16 additional customers have applied for a connection to the exchange.

The opening ceremony was attended by Eberhard van der Laan, Mayor of the City of Amsterdam, as well as officials from Sabey and AMS-IX. ““Historically, the Dutch people are global trading leaders,” said van der Laan. “We were the first European settlers to come to this island, and we named it New Amsterdam. Today, I envision the same business potential here that my ancestors recognized – New York City as a global center of the new Internet economy.”

“I strongly believe that a distributed exchange model offers the best value by enabling a choice of connectivity options in as many data center locations as makes business sense,” said Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “In Amsterdam, the AMS-IX exchange platform is currently distributed over 12 different data centers serving well over 650 IP networks from around the globe, making it the largest Internet exchange in the world.”

“We are very happy to partner with AMS-IX New York on this important market-changing initiative,” said John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers. “Offering more choice in the New York City market to carriers and customers is good for everyone.”

New York, April 16, 2014 – Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owners and developers, and AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), the world’s leading Internet exchange operator, announced today the launch of an AMS-IX New York point-of-presence — the only distributed and neutral Open-IX certified Internet exchange in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area — within Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s 1 million-square-foot facility at 375 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan.

At a launch ceremony led by Eberhard van der Laan, Mayor of the City of Amsterdam, Netherlands, participants welcomed the telecommunications industry’s increasing support for the Open-IX model which is driving the movement to spread the European neutral and distributed model for exchanging traffic between major networks.

The exchange has already signed Netflix, the world’s leading Internet television network, and IX Reach, a global leading provider of wholesale carrier solutions, as the first two customers for AMS-IX New York.  At present, 16 additional customers have applied for a connection to the exchange. The exchange is owned and governed by its members and is operated by AMS-IX USA Inc., a newly formed subsidiary of AMS-IX.

Mayor van der Laan said, “Historically, the Dutch people are global trading leaders. We were the first European settlers to come to this island, and we named it New Amsterdam.  Today, I envision the same business potential here that my ancestors recognized – New York City as a global center of the new Internet economy.”

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors, and other market parties that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model in the US.  The ultimate objective of Open-IX is to reduce interconnection complexity and associated costs in this country, which have been more complex and higher than in Europe, where the preferred Internet exchange model is more common.

John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “The Open-IX model creates neutral, member-governed exchanges that allow participants to trade traffic.  Open-IX spreads exchange operations across multiple data centers in a market.  This allows users and carriers the ability to connect and peer traffic not only in New York City but across the United States and Europe and to potentially avoid legacy building risks and expense.”

Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX, said, “I strongly believe that a distributed exchange model offers the best value by enabling a choice of connectivity options in as many data center locations as makes business sense.  In Amsterdam, the AMS-IX exchange platform is currently distributed over 12 different data centers serving well over 650 IP networks from around the globe, making it the largest Internet exchange in the world.”

Mr. Witteman added, “The opportunity to start neutral, distributed Internet exchanges in the US with the endorsement of the Open-IX community fits our strategy of building Internet exchanges in connectivity hub locations around the world.  We believe the model will bring the North American IP interconnection market tremendous value by decreasing complexity as well as the associated costs.”

Sabey Data Center Hits Milestone

By Rayna Katz | New York

Intergate.Manhattan

The 30,000-square-foot floor plates at Downtown’s Sabey Data Center are meant for tenant expansion.

NEW YORK CITY—Sabey Data Center Properties has announced that 10 information carriers and telecommunications providers have signed on to take space at Intergate.Manhattan—the company’s data center in lower Manhattan, for significant East Coast network expansions.

To date, the fiber optic network carriers who have signed licensing agreements with Sabey include Zayo, Sidera, Lightower, Verizon Level 3, Optical Communications Group, Time Warner Cable Business Class, United Fiber & Data, Lightpath, and XO. Together, they will offer Intergate.Manhattan’s tenants a full suite of facilities-based services including dark fiber, lit transport and IP services, and carrier-neutral colocation and interconnection, Ethernet, SONET, wavelength, Internet access and more.

In addition, AMS-IX USA Inc., a newly formed subsidiary of AMS-IX, an Internet exchange operator, will deploy its new US distributed Internet exchange in Sabey’s facility at 375 Pearl St. The property feature 1.1 million square feet of space in its data center.

Reaching the 10-carrier mark is a milestone for Sabey, Sabey VP of sales and leasing Daniel Meltzer tells GlobeSt.com. “We had an internal goal of 10 because that’s a number people would accept as critical mass. Now we have the ability for tenants to choose their carriers.”

The company also has “carrier hotels,” he notes, enabling even small or international providers to provide service at the building through Sabey’s own network “as if they’re next door.”

Adds John Sabey, president, Sabey Data Center Properties, “Sitting at a confluence of the world’s transatlantic cable and fiber routes, Intergate.Manhattan is a crucial presence as our Sabey Data Center network expands. Equally important, Intergate.Manhattan will be the next and best telecom carrier hotel on the East Coast, offering unprecedented opportunities for network carriers to expand their customer operations.”

Additional carriers, including European carriers, are in negotiations with Sabey and are expected to sign licensing agreements soon at Intergate.Manhattan.

The building reportedly offers many advantages that are not available elsewhere in Manhattan. The data center’s 30,000-square-foot floor plates are designed for tenant expansion.

Intergate.Manhattan is also located on high ground, and was untouched by Superstorm Sandy. All critical systems, including the new electrical service and associated systems, have been placed on the 2nd floor or higher.

Says Sabey, “As the few major existing data centers and carrier hotels in Manhattan are nearing capacity from space, power, and cooling perspectives, we view Intergate.Manhattan as an asset uniquely positioned to offer a world class computing environment for those users with on-island data center needs.”

10 Leading IT and Communications Carriers Expand at Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s New Data Center

News Summary

  • Sabey Data Center Properties announced today that 10 leading IT and communications carriers have expanded their New York City presence at Intergate.Manhattan.
  • Sabey’s new Manhattan data center, with its strategic market location, storm proof facilities, unparalleled infrastructure, and state-of-the-art physical security, will provide the carriers with unmatched opportunities to expand their customer base.
  • With its unique assets, Intergate.Manhattan is on a path to becoming the “go-to” location for carriers on the East Coast, and will soon house additional service providers from both the U.S. and Europe.

NEW YORK, March 18, 2014

Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties announced today that 10 of the world’s leading information carriers and telecommunications providers selected Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s new data center in lower Manhattan, for their significant East Coast network expansions.

To date, the fiber optic network carriers who have signed licensing agreements with Sabey include: Zayo, Sidera, Lightower, Verizon (copper only), Level 3, Optical Communications Group, Time Warner Cable Business Class, United Fiber & Data, Lightpath, and XO. Together, they will offer Intergate.Manhattan’s tenants a full suite of facilities-based services including dark fiber, lit transport and IP services, and carrier-neutral colocation and interconnection, Ethernet, SONET, wavelength, Internet access, and more.

In addition, AMS-IX USA Inc., a newly formed subsidiary of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), the world’s leading Internet exchange operator, will deploy its new U.S distributed Internet exchange in Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s 1 million-square-foot facility at 375 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan.

The Intergate.Manhattan deployment is a key component of AMS-IX USA Inc.’s plan to build and operate an open Internet exchange known as AMS-IX New York. Both AMS-IX and Intergate.Manhattan’s Open IX environment will be a magnet for more carriers and Internet service providers.

Sabey, the largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owner and developer on the West Coast, began mission-critical East Coast operations in 2013 at the 1-million-square-foot tower located at 375 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan.

John Sabey, President, Sabey Data Center Properties, said, “Sitting at a confluence of the world’s transatlantic cable and fiber routes, Intergate.Manhattan is a crucial presence as our Sabey Data Center network expands. Equally important, Intergate.Manhattan will be the next and best telecom carrier hotel on the East Coast, offering unprecedented opportunities for network carriers to expand their customer operations.”

Daniel Meltzer, Sabey Vice President of Sales and Leasing, said, “We want to attract as many carriers as possible. We will offer fiber services to our customers to allow them to connect with any of the carriers in the building. We will create an ecosystem where one carrier can easily interconnect with another. For example, if Lightpath wishes to interconnect with Level 3, we would like them to do that inside Intergate.Manhattan; carrier–to-customer and carrier-to-carrier.”

Additional carriers, including European carriers, presently are in negotiations with Sabey and are expected to sign licensing agreements soon at Intergate.Manhattan. And, as Intergate.Manhattan serves as Sabey’s gateway to Europe, the company’s privately owned IGX fiber network connects New York with Sabey data centers on the West Coast, opening a gateway to the Pacific Rim and Asia.

Mr. Meltzer added, “Our customers may opt to have IGX as a back-up for their existing carrier of choice at Intergate.Manhattan.”

Because many major carriers also offer their own co-location services to their customers, Sabey believes that Intergate.Manhattan’s licensed carriers will become Sabey customers themselves. Intergate.Manhattan is fully managed and operated by Sabey technology staff. It offers fully turn-key technology solutions tailored to users with varying space, power, and connectivity challenges, as well as data center ready shell space for tenants that choose to design, build, and operate their own data center within the building envelope, leveraging its robust core infrastructure.

The building offers many advantages that are not available elsewhere in Manhattan. The purpose-built data center’s 30,000-square-foot floor plates are designed for tenant expansion and are augmented on all four sides by large, basement-to-roof open shafts, or “bustles,” which are external to the building and which allow almost unlimited vertical transportation potential for fiber and MEP commodities without disturbing existing tenants. High clear heights with easily accessible, open, overhead cableways obviate the clutter and confusion of raised floor cabling.

Intergate.Manhattan is also located on high ground, and was untouched by superstorm Sandy. All critical systems, including the new electrical service and associated systems, have been placed on the 2nd floor (33’-0” above grade level), or higher, in the building to assure the highest level of uptime.
In addition, the property’s on-site security and life safety measures include pre-action fire suppression systems, 24-hour data center monitoring and operations support, and on-site security officers, biometric, and other access controls. The building’s perimeter is patrolled by the New York Police Department and Homeland Security.

Mr. Sabey said, “As the few major existing data centers and carrier hotels in Manhattan are nearing capacity from space, power, and cooling perspectives, we view Intergate.Manhattan as an asset uniquely positioned to offer a world class computing environment for those users with on-island data center needs.”

MRV’s OptiDriver(TM) delivers more capacity, intelligence and energy-efficiency to support NYC’s growing bandwidth requirements.

CHATSWORTH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–January 13, 2014–

MRV Communications(TM), Inc. (OTCQB: MRVC) (“MRV(R)”), a leading provider of innovative packet and optical solutions, today announced that Sabey Data Centers has selected MRV’s OptiDriver(TM) optical transport platform for its proprietary Intergate.Exchange (IGX) network to support interconnection bandwidth requirements at Intergate.Manhattan–its new mega data center in New York City. The OptiDriver(TM) platform will empower Sabey Data Centers’ network with higher capacity, power-efficiency, intelligence and flexibility.

Intergate.Manhattan is the largest, tallest and most connected of New York City’s data centers and the city’s only purpose-built data center that provides managed wholesale colocation space and turnkey, powered shell and lab space. A primary consideration for data center tenants is bandwidth and path diversity. To meet this critical requirement, Sabey selected MRV’s OptiDriver(TM) platform with up to 4 terabits of protected capacity as the foundation for connections between Intergate.Manhattan at 375 Pearl Street and the city’s other large data centers at 60 Hudson Street, 111 Eighth Avenue and 32 Avenue of the Americas.

“Our brand new IGX fiber connection at Intergate.Manhattan requires high bandwidth and resiliency to ensure high levels of service to our customers, and efficient energy usage to lower costs and improve our environmental footprint in the largest data center in the city,” said John Sabey, president of Sabey Data Centers.

The OptiDriver(TM) platform — MRV’s newest optical transport solution — is the industry’s highest-density 10Gbps transport system delivering more capacity, intelligence and ease-of-use for data center networks. The platform can be configured to support multiple service types, has built-in redundant features that ensure service availability and includes support for low latency dispersion compensation modules and other features that enable ultra-low latency services. As a result, Sabey Data Centers is able to more effectively guarantee high-quality services to its end customers.

“We specifically designed the OptiDriver(TM) platform to reduce capital and operational expenses so that data center operators, like Sabey Data Centers, can better support bandwidth-rich connections while maintaining a healthy bottom line,” said Tim Pillow, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, for MRV Communications. “MRV is enabling more intelligent, efficient networks to support both current and next-generation data center services, such as software-defined networking, virtualization and cloud computing.”

 Full Story:

New York, December 3, 2013 – Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties announced today that its high rise data center in New York City, Intergate.Manhattan, has signed a long-term lease to provide mission critical space to B&H Photo, Video & Pro Audio, the largest non-chain photo and video equipment store in the United States.

B&H will relocate, upgrade and expand its online store, BHPhotoVideo.com, from its present physical location, to space at Intergate.Manhattan, 375 Pearl Street.

Year after year, B&H Photo, Video &Pro Audio receives the top rating in Consumer Reports Magazine‘s customer surveys.

In addition, B&H will expand its overall web and computer capacity by at least 300%, connecting its new data processing facility at Intergate.Manhattan to its West Side superstore and its warehouse in Brooklyn via dark fiber.

B&H is a turn-key customer at Intergate.Manhattan.  Sabey Data Center Properties will provide B&H with a highly secure, mission critical environment.   Sabey assisted B&H in the build out.

Joseph Jacobowitz, Senior Manager, Telecommunications & Data Center Operations, B&H, said, “We were looking for a data center with a variety of attributes—a certain class of redundancy that other data centers didn’t have; being outside the flood plain; and the proximity to peering exchanges so that we could shave off a few seconds with customer orders.  Being customer-centric, we also looked at the thinking process of the B&H and Sabey team.  Sabey, like us, is very customer-focused.”

John Sabey, President, Sabey Data Center Properties, said, “We’re proud to welcome New York’s own B&H Photo & Video to Intergate.Manhattan.  B&H has always been at the forefront of the online retail revolution.  They were among the first retailers to make enormous capital investments in digital imaging and professional audio equipment, as well as web-based shopping and customer service.  We think B&H is a great fit for Intergate.Manhattan.”

Daniel Meltzer, Sabey Vice President of Sales and Leasing, said, “B&H conducted a very extensive review of data center sites and visited major data centers throughout the U.S. before choosing Intergate.Manhattan.  The fact that Intergate.Manhattan was untouched by Superstorm Sandy was a major factor in B&H’s decision to expand at 375 Pearl Street. “

Sabey, one of the largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owner/developer/operators in the United States, is now commencing mission-critical operations at the 1-million-square-foot tower.

The building offers many advantages that are not available elsewhere in Manhattan.  The purpose-built data center’s 35,000-square-foot floor plates are designed for tenant expansion and are augmented on three sides by large, basement-to-roof open shafts, or “bustles,” which are external to the building and which allow almost unlimited vertical transportation potential for fiber and MEP commodities without disturbing existing tenants.   High clear heights with easily-accessible, open, overhead cableways obviate the clutter and confusion of raised floor cabling.

All critical systems, including the new electrical service and associated systems, have been placed on the 2nd floor (33’-0” above grade level), or higher, in the building to assure the highest level of uptime.

In addition, the property’s on-site security and life safety measures include pre-action fire suppression systems, 24-hour data center monitoring and operations support, and on-site security officers, biometric, and other access controls. The building’s perimeter is patrolled by the New York Police Department and Homeland Security.
