Interconnection specialist Telx has acquired 21,000 square feet of space at 8435 Stemmons Freeway in Dallas, the company said. The deal follows the company’s expansion in its existing Dallas facility at the Univision Tower Building at 2323 Bryan Street, where Telx doubled its presence to more than 11,000 square feet of space. Telx will link the two facilities, enabling customers in the new Stemmons site to access more than 70 networks through the Telx Meet Me Room at 2323 Bryan.

“2007 has been a year of phenomenal growth for Telx as well as a year of significant integration,” said Eric Shepcaro, Chairman and CEO of Telx. “We acquired 10 network rich exchange facilities from Digital Realty Trust and one from NYC Connect, providing us a presence at 111 8th Avenue in New York. Now, with 14 facilities in 9 markets, the time is right to continue our expansion and growth. Stemmons will also provide us the opportunity to deploy our annex strategy of new Telx ColoXchange Centers that will provide an array of Telx connectivity products and services.”


The colocation space at 8435 Stemmons Freeway is a purpose built data center facility, with raised floors and redundant power sources (both AC and DC options) and generator back-up. The facility was previously used by First American Real Estate Information Services, which relocated to a new 615,000 square foot headquarters in the Solana corporate park in Southlake, Texas.

Telx also said it is rebranding its Meet Me Rooms as Telx “Xchange Centers” according to Tesh Durvasula, Chief Marketing and Business Officer. “In 2008, Telx expects to add and expand network rich ColoXchange Centers in several of the 9 markets it currently operates in as well as expanding into several new markets,” said Durvasula.

Telx is a privately held company headquartered in New York City with facilities in Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Weehawken, NJ.
