Stream Data Centers, a provider of data center solutions for enterprise users, has acquired a new data center in Westminster, CO - a suburb of Denver. The data center was built and commissioned in 2006 by a Fortune 500 insurance company. The 29,500-sq-ft, single-story building includes 10,000 sq ft of raised floor, and 7,500 sq ft of disaster recovery office space. This represents a rare opportunity for data center users of this size to control all aspects of the building including data center infrastructure, security, and operations. The fully operational data center is available for immediate occupancy.

The Stream Private Data Center in Denver is designed for 1,125 kw of critical load, and a 2N electrical / N+1 mechanical configuration. The mechanical system features water cooled centrifugal chillers and plate heat exchangers to provide free cooling approximately 60% of the year. The Stream Private Data Center is designed for the expansion of power and cooling infrastructure. Additionally, the carrier neutral facility includes two diversely fed redundant fiber feeds and access to multiple fiber providers.

"We are very excited about this acquisition and the opportunity to immediately enter the Denver data center market with an asset of this quality. This is a secure, efficient single tenant data center facility unlike any other in the market," said Anthony Bolner, senior vice president of Stream Data Centers. "It is a tremendous opportunity for enterprise users needing to rapidly deploy critical data center operations, and have the ability to expand power density and cooling over time."

The Denver Metro Area's proven infrastructure has attracted major data center operations and critical facilities for companies such as TIAA- CREF, Level 3 Communications, Honda, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin.

The seller was represented by Mark Stables, David Horowitz, and Jim Kerrigan with Grubb & Ellis Company in Chicago. Stream Data Centers was represented in the transaction by Frank Kelley and Doug Bakke with CB Richard Ellis in Denver.
