128 First Avenue
Needham, MA




OPPORTUNITY. Commissioned by Level 3 Communications to serve as its northeastern regional data center, 128 First Avenue in Needham, Massachusetts, features a physically enhanced shell with an extremely heavy duty roof, a backup cooling system that includes a 400,000 gallon water tank, 16 megawatts of backup power generation, and robust HVAC, security, fire protection and fiber distribution systems.

As a result of overcapacity among telecommunications network providers, Level 3 was eager to divest of all non-revenue producing assets, and the building was put on the market at the end of 2002. But coming on the heels of the tech and telecom market crashes and a more general business retrenchment, there were few interested parties for a vacant data center building.
