For the first time, the building’s high-capacity microwave tower, offering impossible-to-duplicate, large-radius “boomer” radio coverage that includes all of Manhattan, is available for lease.
The tower was originally constructed by ITT-USTS as their NY Metro junction for their national long haul microwave network serving manhattan and New Jersey terminal sites with capacity for 10-12 large diameter high performance dishes.
Among the other features of this “power tower site” include:
Facility is engineered to meet the highest possible long haul transmission system reliability objectives and maintained to that standard for the past 35 years
Microwave line of sight to multiple Manhattan and New Jersey locations. Prior LOS paths include Manhattan (50 Exchange Place & 1515 Broadway) and New Jersey (MCI Apline, Neshanic & USTS Secaucus).
Loading dock access, freight elevator to the 26th floor, communications room, antenna collocation-friendly building management.
An approximately 3,000 s/f, built-out carrier class communications room available on the 26th floor.
Options available for rooftop and mezzanine-level antenna locations.
“This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to lease a well-maintained, high-capacity power facility with multiple fiber carriers,” stated Brian Banaszynski, Advance Realty’s managing director.
“Over the past 35 years, we have all witnessed the incredible advances in communication and recognize the importance of a strategically located facility to provide the fast connections necessary for the seamless management of today’s business environment.”
Banaszynski added that the Newark location is ideal for electronic news gathering (ENG) and broadcaster backup transmitter facilities or for point-to-point microwave applications such as mobile backhaul, low latency Ethernet transport and dedicated customer broadband services. It is also well suited to wide area mobile communications along with special Homeland Security and EMS service.
The tower will be available with all current antennas removed by August 1, 2012.
The 26-story, 466,919 s/f One Gateway Center has a fully enclosed direct skywalk connection to Newark’s Penn Station. There is an on-site 250-Room Hilton Hotel and Conference Center and the complex also features a 30,000 s/f retail concourse.
In 2010, the building received “The Outstanding Building of the Year” (TOBY) recognition from the Building Owners and Managers Association or the second time.
