Did you know that there is a telecom hotel in Fort Worth Texas? If your considering building a data center then you should know about the Oil & Gas Commerce Building in downtown Fort Worth.
The building is owned by the same people who owned and developed 2323 Bryan in Dallas which today has over 75 telecom carriers, the third most in the U.S. In addition, Dallas / Fort Worth is geographically one of the best places in the country for data centers. Located in the central U.S., it is a major fiber hub between the East and West coasts. In addition, it is 400 miles inland and a thousand miles from the nearest fault line minimizing the chance of a natural disaster.
The building itself has an entire power substation located in the building's parking garage! In addition, there are 3 fiber feeds going into three ends of the building.
The data center that you saw last year is actually sold out! Now I'm just selling the building for anyone who wants to build their own data center since the infastructure is already there - just add HVAC and raised floor. We have too much on our plate to tackle making another data center until at least 2008.
I hope business is going well!
