About One Wilshire
The One Wilshire building is a key hub for data traffic from Asia, with as much as a third of all trans-Pacific traffic passing through the building, according to estimates. It also serves as a key data storage and interconnection center for Los Angeles businesses, including the media and entertainment industry.
One Wilshire was built in 1967 and served office tenants for many years before beginning a shift to telecom and data center tenants in the early 1990s. The 30-story building has a prime location next to a SBC/PacificBell central switching facility, and benefits from a rooftop with clear lines of sight that are ideal for microwave towers.
Significantly, it stands at the intersection of fiber routes that run down Wilshire Boulevard and Sixth Street, and is tied into major trans-Pacific undersea fiber cables that land about 20 miles away.
In 2010, CoreSite became publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: COR). Today, CoreSite has 21 operational data centers in eight major communications markets across the United States, serves more than 1,350 customers and has a portfolio totaling more than 4.1 million square feet of data center space.
