Cambay has been a pioneer in the data center and telecommunications real estate industry. In 1999, Cambay developed and then leased 200 Paul Avenue in San Francisco. 200 Paul was one of the first "Internet Gateway" properties in the western United States and remains one of the biggest. In 2001, Cambay developed and leased 1100 Space Park Drive in Santa Clara. At the time, 1100 Space Park was the largest multi-tenant data center in the San Francisco Bay Area. In late 2004, Cambay participated in the IPO of Digital Realty Trust (NYSE: DLR), contributing its data center assets into Digital Realty in exchange for trust units. Today, Cambay retains a substantial holding in Digital Realty.
Currently, the Cambay team is engaged in the development of two data center projects; 400 Paul Avenue in San Francisco and 3000 Skyline Drive near Dallas.
400 Paul is the first new data center project to be constructed in San Francisco in 14 years. Designed with state-of-the art electrical and mechanical systems, 400 Paul will include a new purpose-built data center building, constructed from the ground up, plus two renovated classic 1930’s era buildings to provide needed support space adjacent to the data halls.
3000 Skyline Drive is a 750,000 square foot building in Mesquite, Texas, just 9 miles east of downtown Dallas. The team completed a major renovation of the facility in 2012 with the objective of converting it to a wholesale data center. 3000 Skyline has superior utility power capacity with a 138 kV substation on the property that is an integral component of the Oncor Transmission grid in the eastern Dallas region.
