> Executive Summary

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY DATA CENTER INVESTMENT Colliers International is pleased to present the data center investment opportunity at the Wells Building at 324 E. Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee, WI. Located in the heart of downtown, the Wells Building contains the largest network carrier hotel in the state of Wisconsin with direct fiber to over 30+ carriers on site. This premier network connection facility is home to several active data center tenants and provides shell space and turn-key opportunities for incoming users. Ownership is willing to consider straight capital, joint-venture and operator investment interests.

BUILDING HISTORY Built in 1902 for Daniel Wells and designed by Henry C. Koch, it was one of the earliest steel frame high-rise buildings in Milwaukee. Beginning about 1910 until the 1980’s, the building was the long-term home and key communications hub for the Western Union Telegraph Company. Since then, modern telecommunications companies have continued to invest in the network connectivity of this strategic Midwest location. Acquired by Ascendant Holdings in 2011, the Wells Building has since received several million dollars in renovations and infrastructure improvements.

PROPERTY HIGHLIGHTS >> 130,000 square feet of mixed-use building with over 50,000 square feet available for data center/telecommunications users >> Built in 1902, renovated in 2013 with ongoing phased critical infrastructure improvements >> Phased infrastructure plans provide for up to 12mW total power to be delivered to future tenants >> Newly developed facility owned meet-me-room on site with 30+ carriers >> Multiple lease options including entire floor, shell space and turn-key data center suites >> Opportunity for multiple investment scenarios
