In a fast-paced world of technology, the best data centers — and data center providers — are the ones that continually chase new horizons. Whether it’s staying ahead of market demands for robust connectivity, cloud solutions, high-quality colocation or edge initiatives, constant evolution is what keeps the IT world turning for businesses across the globe.
1623 Farnam has always been dedicated to keeping its tenants on that trajectory of steady growth, aligning with evolving requirements and empowering digital transformations. Recently, we accomplished something huge in service of our customers: a $40 million facility expansion. Still, the work didn’t feel complete until we had the chance to celebrate alongside our peers, customers and partners at our Grand Opening event.
Complete with facility tours, a cocktail reception and a Q&A panel with some of our engineering partners, we were proud to welcome our community and celebrate how the new 1623 Farnam seamlessly supports today’s and tomorrow’s cutting-edge IT. Featuring 75,000 gross square feet of availability, redundant and sustainable chilled water systems, 6 MW of power on a uniquely redundant power grid and expanded interconnection capabilities, the facility stands as an ideal home for mission-critical IT and the pioneering goals that drive its betterment.
“The ability to put a design together that would allow an office building with some colocation elements to transformed into a building that can house 4MW of critical IT load, 6MW worth of capacity, 6MW of cooling, bringing new utility services in — [all while] being able to work around an existing operational facility — that’s what I’m most proud of. It’s an enormous undertaking, and I’m really proud of the final results.” – Jack McCarthy of HED, the project’s architectural engineering firm.
When organizations are looking to make impactful strides toward their technological future, they don’t just need a strong launch point — they need an ongoing partnership that they can trust will take care of them now and into the future. As we look ahead, this completed expansion will ensure 1623 Farnam serves as that powerful foundation and enduring asset for the long-term success and empowerment of those that call it home. We’re proud to be a partner to our growing ecosystem, and we’re proud to work alongside an array of great partners to make our clients’ dreams a reality.
