Data center giant Telx has added 69,000 s/f to its New York facility at 60 Hudson Street.
The deal makes the company the largest co-location operator in the building and expands its total tri-state occupancy to 620,000 gross square feet across six facilities.
“We have experienced tremendous growth this year in the greater New York/New Jersey metro area,” Chris Downie, CEO of Telx, noting that the expansion comes on the heels of the opening of a data center in Clifton, NJ, called NJR3, and at 32 Avenue of the Americas (NYC3).
“Now we continue our investment in Telx’s backyard with the strategic expansion of our NYC1 facility in the heart of the financial district. The extensive expansion of NYC1 at 60 Hudson Street provides Telx’s clients and prospects with robust connectivity and data center solutions in New York City that is unmatched in the region.”
Once known of the Western Union Building, 60 Hudson Street is leased through a Colliers International team led by Robert Getreu.
It has been converted to modern day communications hub with over 100 telecom companies now operating from its floors.
Telx operates the largest critical interconnection area in the building, which basically is a switchboard to the Internet.
Telx partnered with DataGryd Data Centers, LLC, a wholesale data center provider also located at 60 Hudson Street, on this expansion. Terms of the transaction were not be disclosed.
