After the acquisition of the historic Wells Building, a carrier hotel and data center located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Pittock Block is the second investment for Harrison Street and 1547. The acquisition is also Harrison Street’s second carrier dense data center investment. J. Todd Raymond, CEO, 1547, said,
“Strategically located with direct access to seven subsea telecommunications cables, Pittock Block is a premier telecommunications Internet Exchange for the West Coast and represents the type of asset we are seeking to add to our connectivity-focused platform with Harrison Street.
We believe there is significant opportunity at Pittock as data center requirements continue to grow exponentially in the region. Our plan is to leverage the strong foundation built by the Pittock Block team and immediately expand data center and co-location capacity while simultaneously investing further into the building’s security and world-class meet-me-room.”
