Telx Unveils Third Manhattan Facility

July 17th, 2013 by · 6 Comments

The interconnectivity specialist Telx has announced the establishment of a third data center in its main hub city. Yep, they’ve got another facility in Manhattan lined up to go with their presence at 60 Hudson and 111 8th Ave.

32aveamericasTelx’s new NYC3 is at 32 Avenue of the Americas, where they’ve teamed up with the Rudin Family. They’ll be assuming exclusive operation of the carrier neutral meet-me-room known as the Hub, which will be tied tightly together with their other two interconnection facilities.

They’ll also be developing a data center on the 10th floor with an initial installment of 72,000 square feet to go with the HUB of course. In all, the expansion will give Telx some 550,000 square feet of space in the NY/NJ metro region.

    hi Rob,

    Care to comment/speculate on whether this signals the interconnection market in NYC proper is shifting away from 60 Hudson and 111 due to pricing, capacity, building ownership, etc, issues at those sites?

    • Fancy Pants says:

      Interesting observation, and I concur. Places like those and 32 Ave of America are just downright awful management. Its the equivalent of a sitcom super of a low rent apartment building and the cartoonish villainy of a union boss running these places. To the degree possible, get out and stop giving these 19th century landowners the keys to critical worldwide interconnection.

  • Disconnect says:

    I don’t see a shift. I would also see prices rising as one person now controls all 3 interconnection facilities in NYC. You have no place else to go, so look for prices to rises in direct corralation to arrogance of the operator.

  • Club Flatworld says:

    Telx is hardly the only game in town for interconnection at 60 Hudson and 111 8th.

  • disconnect says:

    You’re right, they only have the highest carrier density at both location..

  • Toll Troll says:

    New address, same toll booth
