Jamestown Properties, in partnership with Amerimar Enterprises, Inc. and Hunter Newby have commenced development of the first phase of their new carrier-neutral core interconnection facility at 325 Hudson Street, a 10-story, 240,000-square-foot 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.
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.
The first phase of the development will include cage and cabinet spaces as well as a large Meet Me Area (“MMA”) where customers will have the opportunity to make physical interconnections with one another. With 325 Hudson Street and the building’s Meet Me Room under the same ownership and management with a commitment to no monthly recurring cross connect fees, it will provide a reliable, stable and long-term neutral environment for global network operators to thrive in New York City.
