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.
