H5 Data Centers Announces Acquisition of Seattle Data Center

Data Center a Key Point of Carrier Interconnection in Seattle

Denver, CO - January 27, 2011
H5 Data Centers (H5), a national owner and operator of wholesale data centers, announced today that it has acquired 1000 Denny Way, a Seattle data center and headquarters of The Seattle Times. Located in downtown Seattle near South Lake Union, the 285,000 square-foot data center and office building is primarily leased to The Seattle Times, 13 Coins, and several large data center users, including Level (3) Communications and XO Communications. The site serves as a regional hub for long haul carrier services and colocation space, and is a strategic alternative connection hub to the Westin Building.

"Seattle is expected to see strong growth in data center and office requirements from locally-based technology businesses over the next few years," said Josh Simms, CEO for H5. "This region is one of the top areas for global interconnection and colocation as international communications traffic traverse from North America to Asia. 1000 Denny Way can serve a critical role in the Seattle data center and interconnection landscape as customers seek reliable and scalable alternatives to the Westin Building."
H5 invests in a broad spectrum of data center and technology real estate assets, including carrier hotels, enterprise data centers, ground-up development and carrier infrastructure projects.
