Ascent’s Purpose-Built ATL1 Data Center Available Now in High-Tech


JLL retained to market Data Center – Offering Value and Security

Ascent, a leading provider of comprehensive data center solutions, announced today it has partnered with JLL to list its ATL1 Data Center.

The facility is a purpose-built data center designed and constructed as one of the most robust and secure facilities on the east coast, leveraging local power costs that are amongst the lowest on the eastern sea board. Ascent’s ATL1 Data Center features highly resilient, concurrently maintainable infrastructure. The facility is located in the high-tech, global business hub of Alpharetta, Ga. With JLL and Ascent bringing this property to the market, tenants can achieve one of the lowest Total Cost of Ownerships (TCO) in the country in an enterprise-grade data center space. The site is served by high density load systems that ensure reliable and redundant electricity distribution. Additionally, tenants will realize TCO savings through significant relative, power costs advantages and the available data center tax incentives. ATL1 is poised to help drive the growth and prominence of this high-tech community.

ATL1 currently has up to 8.1MW available with expansion capabilities for two additional phases of development on the campus. The facility sits on a secluded 38 acres, and the purpose-built 185,000-square-foot facility offers 34,000 SF of plug and play data center space. The site is scalable to 30MW+ to meet future tenant’s build-to-suit design criteria with state of the art security advantages.

“We look forward to working with the local Atlanta area end-user community and bringing JLL’s international expertise to Ascent’s development,” said Wendy McArthur, Managing Director, JLL Data Center Solutions, who is leading the JLL team. “The Alpharetta area and this location in particular has excellent fiber and power infrastructure already in place. The Ascent Data Center is a great solution for users looking for immediate capacity with runway and flexibility to densify in place and/or grow their data center footprint.”

“Ascent chose JLL because of their data center team’s proven track record of leasing success. We are excited to work with JLL to bring Ascent’s ATL1 Data Center to market for the first time. Tenants will find great value in the impressive, long-term energy economics, highly reliable infrastructure, Ascent’s personalized, around-the-clock support, secure location and enterprise-grade data center,” said Phil Horstmann, CEO of Ascent.
