A growing wholesale data center and retail colocation company based in Denver has announced plans to build a new location in Albuquerque.
H5 Data Centers says it will build out at least 225,000 square feet inside the downtown Compass Bank Building at 505 Marquette Avenue NW.
That structure, built in 1966, measures around 270,000 square feet.
Although an exact timetable for the project has not been announced, a company official says work on the center will most likely begin later this year.
With similar data centers up and running in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Phoenix, and Seattle, H5 Data currently has more than 2 million square feet of operating space, up from around 1 million square feet in 2016.
Company website information regarding the Albuquerque project says the new location will feature “direct access to the key Southwestern metro and long haul network providers.”
The center will particularly serve companies “seeking the benefits of data center customization without the significant time and capital expense to start from the ground up.”
The Albuquerque site will also include private data center suites and on-site parking.
