1547, CIM Kick Off New San Francisco Data Center

April 18th, 2018 by · 1 Comment

The San Francisco Bay Area will soon have another large data center. CIM Group and fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty are teaming up for another development project in the city itself, just outside the central business district.

They have kicked off the construction of a 240,000 square foot data center campus at 400 Paul Avenue. The buildout is at 400 Paul Avenue and will include a new two-story, 187,000 square foot data center as well as the renovation of two existing buildings of 54,225 square feet for support and office space. The campus will feature some 24MW of power capacity.

The location is next door to an existing data center complex at 200 Paul, where an established Digital Realty sits, so they aren’t shooting in the dark when it comes to location. But it’s been a while since we’ve seen a new data center in SF itself rather than further south in Silicon Valley etc.

1547 CSR and CIM also recently made a move together in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

    We have to assume they have a compelling business case, but this strikes me as odd. SF proper might as well be a Tier 2 market these days. If you’re looking to 200 Paul as your example, that’s a glorified telco closet, and not a very good one at that. In what use case would you pay that premium of real estate to be there versus 20 miles away where all the hyperscalers actually have their assets and you have lots of choices?
