The One Wilshire data center was erected in 1966 and has been renovated over the years to accommodate the particular needs of its telecommunications clients. The stretching, 30-story building rests at the junction of S. Grand Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard.
When deciding a location for colocation in Los Angeles, the 656,300 square-foot 1 Wilshire Building in the heart of downtown Los Angeles should be on the top of everyone’s list.
Widely considered the single most important connectivity point in the Western United States, the One Wilshire building has also emerged to become the principal communications hub of the Pacific Rim, providing important connectivity points with Eastern Asia.
It houses the world’s most densely populated data center Meet-Me-Room, the infamous “One Wilshire Meet Me Room”, in which hundreds of internet service providers (ISPs) connect their networks to one another. These interconnected ISPs use the various data center hubs around the world and provide 1 Wilshire data center customers connections to several top tier ISPs.
As a testament to the data center’s importance to the telecommunications scene, the building was sold in 2013 for a then-record $437.5 million. Real estate broker Kevin Shannon of CBRE Group Inc. stated:
“You can’t reproduce the connectivity. It’s telecom gold.”
As aforementioned, the One Wilshire building is known for its telecommunications prowess, but it can also attest to remarkable infrastructure and security proficiency as well.
As the premier telecommunication center for colocation and hosting in the Western United States, the building offers an abundant amount of protection amenities to safeguard their clients’ property such as back-up power generation with ample fuel supply, high capacity air-conditioning units for adequate cooling, and 24/7 on-site security for One Wilshire Colocation.
