Jamestown Properties, in partnership with Amerimar Enterprises, and Hunter Newby, have announced they have commenced development of the first phase of their new carrier-neutral core interconnection facility at 325 Hudson Street, a 10-story, 240,000-sq ft telecom building located in New York City’s Hudson Square area. The building has direct access to transatlantic cables and major metro and regional fiber providers.
The first phase of the development will include cage and cabinet spaces as well as a large Meet Me Area where customers will have the opportunity to make physical interconnections with one another.
“With New York City’s rising demand for connectivity driven by Internet services and application development, Jamestown is proud to draw on the legacy of innovation in this space that began with our investments at 111 8th Avenue and Chelsea Market,” states Michael Phillips, COO of Jamestown. “With our partners Amerimar and Hunter Newby, experts in technology-oriented real estate and telecom, we are excited to offer a state-of-the-art new product to our customers at a great value.”
A former industrial building, 325 Hudson was redeveloped in 1998 into a telecommunications center and acquired by the partnership earlier this year. Located in New York City’s prime telecom center with immediate connectivity to transatlantic cables and the fiber-dense Hudson Street corridor, the building offers critical features, such as heavy floor loading capacity, 12-foot ceilings, as well as robust HVAC, power, and back-up power supply.
