Telx signs lease at Rudin’s 32 Sixth Avenue in Tribeca

Telx has signed a lease for the 45,000-square-foot 10th floor of Rudin Management’s 32 Sixth Avenue grandee in north Tribeca, Crain’s reported.

Robert Steinman, a vice president at Rudin, represented the building’s ownership in-house, while Amanda Bokman and Robert Meyers of CBRE represented Telx. Telx will use the space to house servers and other hardware needed to operate its cloud computing and data warehouse for clients such as Amazon and Google.

The data service provider will also operate the Hub, a 27,000-square-foot facility on the 24th floor, that provides connections to over 90 network operators located in the building.

Constructing the Hub began in 2001, two years after the Rudins bought the building. The aim was to make the property a key hub for Internet-age New York, and the Hub made it possible for a variety of tech tenants to connect.

At 60 Hudson Street, Telx already has a similar operation – another “server hotel” that was once a Western Union headquarters, and operations at 111 Eighth Avenue, owned by Google. [Crain’s] Julie Strickland
