Column Spacing: 29 Feet
Electrical Capacity: 25 watts per square foot with upgrades to 75 watts psf, 480V, 3 phase, 4 wire.
Primary Power: 

One Wilshire is engineered to provide all tenants with 100 watts per square foot. All power is delivered via diverse bus ducts to customer/collocation areas at 480 volts, 3 phase, 4 wire. Existing electrical service consists of three 3,750 kVA, 480V transformers and one 5,000 kVA, 4160V transformer. New infrastructure design which will provide an additional 3,750 kVA service (service #5) will be installed by mid-2002. See full specs for additional details.
Emergency Power:
Currently there are six 2,000KW generators and one 470KW generator supporting tenants' main electrical power in the event of service interruptions or low voltage conditions. Power is distributed via 480V, 3-phase, 4 wire bus duct (1 bus duct per generator). Additional generators 5 and 6, both 2,000KW will be added in mid-2002.
Fuel Storage:

One Wilshire has existing fuel storage and containment with associated pumping and filtering stations for approximately 21,000 gallons of diesel fuel. This will provide sufficient fuel storage capacity to operate all generators on a continuous basis for up to 24 hours without refueling. See full specs for more imformation.

Existing tenant cooling equipment is housed on the third floor roof where heat rejection for up to 75 watts per square foot is provided. A new closed loop cooling system has been installed on the 30th floor roof. The new system will consist of 1,200 tons of redundant cooling towers with piping to the upper floors.
