Miami–Colliers International South Florida was selected by Hotwire Communications to handle the leasing for the two-story, 185,000-square-foot Hotwire Technology Center. The Class A office building is located in Fort Lauderdale, in the suburban Cypress Creek submarket, which is notable for its technology and secure data hosting services.
Jonathan Kingsley, executive vice president, Jarred Goodstein, senior vice president, and Ryan Goggins, senior associate, of Colliers International South Florida, were tasked to handle the leasing efforts.
The Bunker, the building’s main server room, has 16-inch poured concrete walls, double-impact glass, alarm systems, water-cooled air conditioning systems and fire suppressant systems. There are also additional server rooms including a network room, a telecommunications room, a media room for security videotape backup and an Inergen tank storage room. Office spaces are equipped with 1-gigabite data and phone hookups to each desk and the property also features on-site generators and two power grids for backups during power outages.
With Hotwire Communications occupying most of the building, approximately 75,000 leasable square feet remain available for other tenants. Available office spaces range from 5,000 square feet to 75,000 square feet, and amenities include ample secured parking, a 250-seat common area cafeteria and a fitness center.
“Hotwire Technology Center’s advanced data hosting capabilities allow it to meet some of the strictest technological requirements, making it an appealing location for tenants that rely heavily on technology and require 99.999% uptime,” said Colliers’ Kingsley. “The building also offers the larger square footage and ample parking that many of our clients look for when moving from downtown Fort Lauderdale to the Cypress Creek submarket.”
Hotwire Technology Center is owned by Hotwire Communications, a leading fiber optics telecommunications company that provides Internet, HD television, home security and digital phone services. The office building is located at 2100 West Cypress Creek Road, in close proximity to I-95 and Florida’s Turnpike.
