1M sq ft datacenter in former VZN CO at 375 Pearl:
From the story:
Intergate.Manhattan is not only one of the largest facilities [at 32 stories, all rentable space], but it also the only data center that is located in a city center, according to Sabey.
However, some financial services IT experts question locating a large data center in Manhattan. "The fact that a building has integrity, and back up systems, is just one thing," says Steve Rubinow, CIO, Marketplaces Division, Thomson Reuters. "But, as we learned on 9/11 and during Sandy, you also need to be able to get people and materiel to and from the building in times of an emergency. And after 9/11, it became very apparent that building data centers on an island, whether it is Manhattan island or any other island, it is a real bother. It creates an added layer of complexity."
Currently, the data center is in its first phase, providing 100,000 square feet of data center space and 5.4 Megawatts of power. Eventually, Intergate.Manhattan will accommodate 40 Megawatts of data center capacity on 600,000 square feet of data center floor space, with the additional 400,000 square feet dedicated to power, cooling and infrastructure.
