Sabey Data Centers’ 1 Million SF Tower at 375 Pearl St. Is a Strong Fit for Carriers

  • Sabey Data Center Properties announced today that Level 3 Communications has signed an agreement to establish a presence at its premier NY data center Intergate.Manhattan.

  • Sabey’s new Manhattan data centerwith its strategic market location, storm proof facilities, upgraded infrastructure, and state-of-the-art physical security,will provide Level 3 with more ways to support customer demand.

  • With its unique assets, Intergate.Manhattan is on a path to becoming the foremost carrier hotel on the East Coast, and will soon house additional service providers from both the U.S. and Europe.

New York – Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties announced today that Level 3 Communications (NYSE: LVLT), a Fortune 500 company that provides local, national and global communications services to enterprise, government and carrier customers, has signed a licensing agreement to establish two network points of entry at Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s new lower Manhattan data center.

Level 3, with customers in 55 countries, is presently an Internet carrier at Sabey’s data centers in Seattle, Wenatchee and Quincy, Wash. Level 3 and Sabey are building on their existing relationship with Level 3’s two point presence at Intergate.Manhattan.

In addition, Level 3’s fiber is a key component of Sabey Data Center Properties’ proprietary IGX network that interconnects all Sabey data centers. IGX allows Sabey’s East Coast customers to take advantage of low-cost hydroelectric power that is available at the company’s Washington state data centers. This capability is especially attractive to customers who are looking for third-party data center space in Manhattan with economical pricing for power.

John Sabey, President, Sabey Data Center Properties, said, “Level 3’s decision to establish a presence at Intergate.Manhattan sends a clear message that our digital data center at 375 Pearl Street is a great location for carriers. Our brand new mission critical infrastructure, open floor plates and ease of installation is unlike any other data center in Manhattan; plus, we offer the highest levels of security and storm proofing. All of these assets combine as opportunities for network carriers to grow their customer operations and to take advantage of lower cost peering opportunities.”

“As one of the largest media hubs in the world, Manhattan is an important location for Level 3 IP and data center connectivity,” said Paul Savill, senior vice president of Product Management of Level 3. “Connectivity to Sabey’s Intergate.Manhattan data center expands our global data center assets to provide customers with additional options to store and access critical business information.”

Sabey, one of the largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owner/developer/operators in the United States, commenced 24/7 operations at Intergate.Manhattan earlier in 2013.

Daniel Meltzer, Sabey Vice President of Sales and Leasing, said, ““With the addition of Level 3 as a carrier at Intergate.Manhattan, we are excited about the opportunities both companies have to leverage the key vertical markets in New York City including healthcare, financial services, social media and many more. Offering high value telecommunications services like those services provided by Level 3 is critical to our tenants in New York City.”
