Cushman & Wakefield Awarded Agency for 58,683-Square-Foot Data Center
CARLSTADT, N.J., Jan. 31, 2014 - Cushman & Wakefield has been selected by Robert Wilson of Wilson Associates to market 480 Gotham Parkway, a 58,683-square-foot data center, disaster recovery, colo and telco facility in Carlstadt, N.J., for lease. Sean Brady, senior director and co-founder of the firm's Global Data Center Advisory Group, and Dawn Arrabito, director, brokerage services were selected because of their extensive knowledge of the data center market and their participation in the company's National Data Center Group.
"Comdisco designed and constructed this state-of-the-art facility and occupied it for 10 years, providing clients with disaster recovery, back-up data and telecommunications services prior to consolidating to a nearby facility," said Brady. "Subsequent occupants have included Unisys, Citibank, Washington Mutual, American Express and JP Morgan Chase."
"The building and grounds provides a unique opportunity for a broad range of users in the computer, internet and wholesale/colo industries," said Arrabito.
Situated on 3.5 acres in Bergen County, just minutes from New York City, 480 Gotham Parkway is a one-story data center facility with 52,600 square feet on the ground floor and 4,182 square feet of mezzanine office space. This building was formerly a JP Morgan/Unisys Data Center facility. It has a great infrastructure with 10 Megawatts of power with dual/redundant 13.2 Kv PSE&G substations servicing the facility, one from Carlstadt and the other from East Rutherford. Some other features of this unique building include fiber and copper for telecom use, with nine fiber providers including an underground SONET ring in front of the building. The SONET ring has a bandwidth equivalent of 6,000 TI lines. Additionally there are the UPS systems with dual grid primary power sources, over 700 tons of Liebert air conditioning units, and an ADT fire alarm system. The building has two 1,500 Kw Caterpillar generators, two 250 gallon day tanks and a 10,000 gallon main tank. The computer rooms contain pre-action fire protection and smoke detection, and the facility's security system includes card readers and access control, intruder detection, CCTV and video recording. The previous tenants operated this facility as a top notch data center.
"This property provides an extremely flexible environment for virtually any medium-to large-scale mission-critical user," said Brady.
