Rising Realty Partners closed a new deal at the old Garland Center — the data center portion of which it renamed “West 7 Center.”

Internet company Evocative signed a long-term lease for 42,000 square feet at the structure at 1200 West Seventh Street in Downtown Los Angeles, a representative of the company told The Real Deal.

JLL’s Darren Eades brokered the deal.

Evocative, which offers secure Internet infrastructure for its clients, will have access to two data centers within West 7 Center, offering 2.5 megawatt capacity.

West 7 will be Evocative’s first data center location in Los Angeles. The firm also has data centers in Silicon Valley, Emeryville, San Francisco and Las Vegas.

West 7 Center has 450,000 square feet of office space across nine floors, as well as 282,000 square feet in its data center. It is the largest data center in Downtown — and has constant on-site engineering and security support for its clients, according to a Rising release.

Rising’s portfolio spans from older long-term-hold buildings to redevelopments. The firm most recently purchased One California Plaza with partner Colony NorthStar. It bought the Garland Center last year and is renovating One Bunker Hill. Its biggest wave-maker was its purchase of the historic PacMutual building in DTLA for $60 million. After giving it a creative office makeover, Rising sold it for $200 million to Ivanhoe Cambridge and Callahan Capital Partners in 2015 — a neighborhood record at the time.
