rolled out an aggressive new program to attract new customers.

a relocation allowance to displaced companies who lease space
in the facility by June 1.

to the many San Francisco Bay Area data centers slated for closure
this year," the company said in a press release.
96,000 square foot facility was developed for data center use
by Metromedia Fiber Network's AboveNet subsidiary, which sold
the building back to landlord 160 Harrison LLC last July. The
building is being managed by 365 Inc.

broad array of choices for bandwidth and managed service providers,
in a financially stable real-estate platform at a fraction of
the cost of our competitors," said Chris Dolan, president of 365

been excited with the opportunity to house their critical data
in a facility of this quality at such competitive prices," said

investment by AboveNet, including a $30 million dollar seismic
retrofit that utilizes a state-of-the-art base isolation system.
