San Francisco-based Digital Realty is acquiring a 49% ownership interest from Clise Properties. in the Westin Building Exchange in Seattle. The property serves as the primary interconnection hub for the Pacific Northwest, linking Canada, Alaska and Asia along the Pacific Rim.
The 34-story tower at 2001 Sixth Ave. is adjacent to Amazon’s 4.1-million-square-foot urban campus, and overlooks Elliott Bay as well as the downtown Seattle skyline. The building is the sixth most densely interconnected facility in North America, and is home to leading global cloud, content and interconnection providers, housing over 150 carriers and more than 10,000 cross-connects.
Digital Realty’s A. William Stein says, “This linchpin asset gives us the opportunity to fully leverage our robust business infrastructure and open up a full suite of enterprise IT solutions to our global customer base. This transaction further strengthens our interconnection platform and demonstrates our commitment to accelerating digital business on PlatformDIGITAL.”
