The overall program is a single story, 105,000-square-foot building containing 46,000 square feet of data hall area. The building is planned to be expanded with multiple story additions for a total area of 180,000 square feet with 100,000 square feet of data hall. The ultimate density is planned to be as high as 165 watts per square foot. The facility is located on a previously developed, 6-acre site. Project work included demolition of a warehouse structure to create a building shell and interior purpose-built for data center functions. Being located in Los Angeles, the building and all components are designed to a seismic importance factor of 1.5 – the same used for other critical structures such as hospitals and emergency response facilities.
