Piscataway data centre agreement includes anchor tenant lease
BOULDER, Colo. – December 17, 2018 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZAYO) will expand its East Coast data centre presence with a new location in Piscataway, New Jersey. The carrier-neutral facility will add more than 47,000 total square feet and up to five megawatts (MW) of critical power, addressing strong demand for colocation in the tri-state area.
The anchor agreement with a leading financial services tenant includes space and power in the data centre and two dark fibre rings. Zayo will renovate the remaining space and upgrade critical power to sell to additional customers. The facility tethers to Zayo’s data centre at 165 Halsey St. in Newark and includes connectivity to local carrier hotels and more than 1,000 data centres globally.
“The tri-state area is one of the most important data centre markets in the world, with a diverse base of businesses, including financial and professional service companies, contributing to strong demand,” said Bruce Garrison, senior vice president of Zayo’s zColo business segment. “This facility provides an excellent option for colocation space in the Northeast with connectivity across North America and around the world.”
This expansion brings Zayo’s zColo portfolio to 51 data centres in more than 30 markets across North America and Europe. In addition to space and power, Zayo provides its customers with extensive connectivity over its global fibre network.
