Ownership: Equinix does not own the building.

The Equinix CH1, CH2, and CH4 data centers are located at 350 East Cermak Rd in Chicago, which is one of the biggest carrier hotels in the world. The building is a nexus of interconnection and an unusual confluence of two Interconnection ecosystems, Internet Exchange and Financial Exchange. The two ecosystems create significant demand for space in the building and therefore available colocation space is limited and pricing is higher.

Although Equinix distinctly separates CH1, CH2, and CH4 into separate data centers, in reality they are in the same building, but on different floors. Equinix controls and manages conduit to deliver cross connects between the floors.

From a cross connect perspective, Equinix treats CH1, CH2, and CH4 as one large data center. If a carrier is on different Equinix floor, they are reachable via a standard cross connect. There are no additional charges to connect within Equinix's site(s) at 350 E Cermack beyond the standard XC fee.

The project team was able to deliver in just 180 days this two-story, 22.5-MW, 225,000-sq-ft greenfield data center, including the fit-out and commissioning of 160,000 sq ft of data hall space and MEP galleries.

Design and construction occurred concurrently, requiring extensive coordination and communication among team members. The aggressive schedule was fast-tracked using double shifts for the shell construction. To accomplish the fit-out schedule, crews worked 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The building features a precast structural concrete exterior atop concrete foundations, with a slab-on-grade first floor and a second floor consisting of a topping slab above precast double tees.

The team excavated and hauled away 35,000 cu yd of extra fill dirt in the first days on the job. To stay on schedule, trucks operated 16 hours each day. A January 2016 snowstorm dropped about 3 ft of snow on the jobsite. While some of HITT’s other sites were closed for five days following the storm, the data center team had crews back on site in 48 hours.
