First Data Center in San Francisco for Sale in Over 15 Years
With a plethora of data centers in San Francisco, what has many talking around the water cooler is that a large data center building in San Francisco is on the market for sale. What is unique about this sale is that this is first one in over 15 years for a building that has been purposely built for use as a data center.
In past years, the building has been used for a wide variety of purposes. Teleglobe, an international telco carrier, leased 2 of the floors in this building at one time and another large commercial storage company, Self Storage 1 used the building for rental of storage units.
But with a preference to keep the future of this building in use as a data center, Wired Real Estate Group Inc.(WiredRE) with over 2,000 data centers listed in its database, is the company hired to handle this building at 1828 Egbert Avenue in San Francisco and will offer the building for sale or lease. WiredRE is the nation’s leading cloud, colocation and data center advisor. Everett Thompson, WiredRE CEO, said, “With installed, underground power supply and immediate capacity available, we are receiving a high level of interest from firms that value time to market and the logical and physical diversity that a world class carrier hotel and exchange point can provide. This project is another example of unique colocation and data center opportunities available via WiredRE.”
Located in the Bay Area Fiber ring and within minutes of San Francisco’s internet and biotechnology districts, the building offers 4 stories at 30,000 square foot each. It has a 10MW switchgear installed and 1 MW of power onsite that is expandable to 16MW and has immediate connections to all regional fibers hubs. Providing reinforced concrete walls, the building is seismically built to withstand San Francisco’s earthquakes.
With nearby access to Hwy 101 and Hwy 208, the building sits just 5 blocks from 200 Paul, which according to Data Center Knowledge, is one of the most important data center and interconnection hubs in the city and on the West coast.
