Lightower, a provider of digital fiber optic networks, has signed a long-term lease at Palisades Data Center, Cushman & Wakefield of New Jersey announced Tuesday morning.
The technology company joins a major trading and investment firm that moved in April 1 on the tenant list. The building’s owner Skae Power Solutions is also a tenant using the facility as its headquarters.
“Lightower, an all-fiber provider of high-capacity network services, chose Palisades Data Center because of its location on their Hudson River Crossing Fiber Network, which offers diversity and a shorter route relative to paths across the Tappan Zee Bridge, as well as the proven reliability of the facility’s mission-critical infrastructure,” said Sean Brady, senior director and co-founder of Cushman & Wakefield’s Data Center Advisory Group which represented Skae Power. “Those were the deciding factors.”
The site, he explains, offers multiple, diverse fiber routes and Hudson River crossings, which establish “low latency connections” to major facilities like 111 Eighth Ave., 165 Halsey St., and other critical facilities in the region. The building is described as a Tier 3 Data Center.
“We are also pleased to announce the completion of DC-4, the facility’s newest data center hall,” Brady added. “DC-4 increases the capacity considerably and allows us to provide customizable turnkey solutions for our tenants’ needs. Whether the requirement is for one rack or one hundred racks, we will provide the solution in one low monthly rental rate, which is a big reason why we continue to see considerable interest in this new cutting edge facility.”
Skae Power Solutions was formed by Peter Skae in 1998 and relocated to the newly constructed Palisades Data Center site in 2011. Located near the New York State Thruway and the Palisades Interstate Parkway, the 24,000-squar- foot facility includes data center space, disaster recovery space and office space supported by a network operating center featuring remote monitoring services.
The center at 348 Route 9W in Palisades.
