A specific type of commercial property is a data center or data hosting center. This is also referred to as a telecom hotel, switching center, cyber center or web hosting facility. This is defined as a commercial building designed as a centralized repository for the storage, management, and dissemination of data and information. The primary characteristic of these facilities is that they have very few, if any, offices, because they principally house electronic equipment. The floors handle heavy loads and the buildings typically have heavy power that run large amounts of electrical equipment, backup generators and air conditioners. A data center is owned or leased to one company and a telecom hotel is leased to numerous companies. We have appraised these properties types for various users and institutional clients such as AT&T and Verizon. Please contact us for any data center appraisal services.
