South Hill North Data CenterThe Seattle area’s new, high-capacity next generation South Hill North Data Center in Puyallup, Wash., has received the Technology Development of the Year Award from NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Assn. The Benaroya Co., which developed and owns the facility, was presented the award at the industry’s Washington Chapter Night of the Stars Gala on Nov. 5. South Hill Data Center was recognized for excellence in its outstanding design, quality product, sustainability, and other market criteria. Other technology properties nominated included Microsoft’s Studios West Campus.

South Hill Data Center combines proven design and environmental sustainability to provide reliable, abundant clean low-cost power, and robust critical infrastructure at a low cost of operation. South Hill’s onsite dual-fed electrical substation has 42.5 MW of dedicated available power expandable to 67.5 MW providing superior redundancy and scalable density to support all mission critical requirements, including cloud computing and virtualization. Commissioning is now under way and the data center is available for immediate occupancy.

South Hill North Data Center can immediately deliver up to 260 W/sq ft of critical load to the 56,605 sq ft of raised floor space that is completed and ready for occupancy. An additional 60,000 to 70,000 sq ft with 17.5 MW of dedicated power also is available and ready to fit for a build-to-suit, in the adjacent South Building.  Along with the on-site containerized data center area, the two enterprise data center facilities are located on a secure 92-acre campus.

Conveniently located near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Seattle, and the region’s base of leading technology and Internet companies, South Hill Data Center brings new, much-needed computing capacity to the West Coast with the added advantages of low power cost, industry leading energy efficiency and an enviably low 1.32 power usage effectiveness (PUE). South Hill has been built to LEED Gold and Energy Star quality standards.
