West 7 Center set for increased growth in Los Angeles
Rising Realty Partners, a full-service investment platform specializing in creating world-class commercial and industrial properties, announces that its West 7 Center is experiencing increased growth through the demand for cloud-based IT services and high-speed content delivery in Southern California. The Tier III facility, located at 1200 West Seventh Street in downtown Los Angeles, is the largest subterranean space in the city for colocation and operations.
According to US-based real estate firm JLL, the US datacenter sector will triple its infrastructure by 2020 as a growing number of IoT providers seek data storage for cloud services and Asian telecommunications companies enter into the US market. As the only Los Angeles building purpose-built as a carrier-neutral datacenter, the West 7 Center is directly positioned to offer mission-critical colocation services and network diversity for OTTs, carriers, IoT providers, healthcare facilities and government organizations.
“The West 7 Center adds clear value to telecom operators and enterprises in Los Angeles and across Southern California,” says Tyson Strutzenberg, Chief Operating Officer of Rising Realty Partners. “Not only is it the largest center downtown, but it serves as a gateway to Asia since it is also on the Wilshire corridor, just a few blocks away from One Wilshire. Because the datacenter portion of West 7 Center is entirely subterranean, it is the area’s class-leading facility in terms of seismic safety and disaster recovery.”
When it was first built, the West 7 Center already exceeded seismic building codes. Since then, the facility has undergone further upgrades to increase its reliability and efficiency. Backed by two central plants with N+1 power/cooling redundancy, the West 7 Center facility has over 70,000 gallons of fuel on hand at anytime to support the building’s two central plants in case of emergency or power outages.
With 16 carriers already a part of its growing tenant roster, West 7 Center currently has approximately 172,000 square feet of datacenter, mission critical space available.
West 7 Center is a Tier III datacenter facility built with mission critical infrastructure, 24/7 on-site engineering and security support in the heart of Los Angeles. The facility has nine floors of office space and 340,000 RSF of datacenter space on three subterranean levels that are supported by the Building’s two central plants with a total of 16.9 MW of generator backed power, 3,000 kW of Building UPS power and 9,000 tons of cooling capacity for telecom, mission critical, co-location and datacenter operations.
Currently, West 7 Center has approximately 13 MW of emergency power and 172,000 sq ft of space available. The building has undergone significant upgrades in order to keep up with the ever-changing technology environment.
