DataSite Orlando will open the first phase of a 130,000 square-foot purpose-built data center in Orlando, Florida which will begin installing tenants in September. DataSite Orlando, which is owned by Burges Property Co., is investing more than $26 million to upgrade the former AT&T facility. The company has hired Total Site Solutions to perform the upgrades and complete the first phase of mechanical and electrical infrastructure by the end of this month.
"Data center space is very scarce in Central Florida, and the size of this facility makes it a unique asset for our community," said Rob Wilson, Director of Sales and Marketing for DataSite. "By expanding the infrastructure base for Central Florida's high tech sector, DataSite Orlando will be a valuable tool in growing existing business and attracting new business to the region."
Total Site Solutions is a unit of Fortress International, a holding company that has acquired a number of companies that design and build mission-critical facilities. TSS will also provide facility maintenance services for DataSite Orlando.
