Bloomberg offered tempting power deal

Bloomberg has received a promise of low-cost power from the New York Power Authority if it goes ahead with its planned Orangetown data center in New York.

The power company named Bloomberg as the top recipient of such a deal under the sixth round of its ReCharge New York Low-Cost Power Allocations, designed to boost employments numbers by increasing business activity in the state.

In total, it offered 19.6MW in allocations, providing Bloomberg with 8,000kW – a reward for the 80 jobs Bloomberg has committed to creating if it builds its data center in New York with a capital investment of US$245m.

This investment is only a small portion if what Bloomberg said it would be likely to spend on the project.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the company’s founder, said Bloomberg plans to invest US$750m in 15 years at the site already earmarked for development in Orangetown.

Part of this will be to build a 143,331 sq ft data center that will be constructed by Russo Development and Sentinel Data Centers and leased back to Bloomberg.

Bloomberg said it expected to pay US$435m for furnishing and equipping the site.

On top of the 80 jobs the site will create once complete, Bloomberg spokeswoman pam Snook told lohud.com that 250 people will be required for construction, which she hopes will kick off “as soon as possible”.

Bloomberg, however, has said that tax breaks are important if the project goes ahead, including sales tax breaks and other assistance.

The breaks issued by the New York Power Authority have seen input from the Governor’s regional economic development councils and Empire State Development.

In May, officials in New York approved a range of tax breaks for the build, but a site was still being decided.

The data center will be housed in a one-story facility and provide more than 7MW of critical power. The developers plan to bring it online in the middle of 2014.

  • 5 Reasons Why DCIM Has Failed

    Wed, 15 Jul 2015 10:00:00

    Historically, DCIM systems have over-promised and under-delivered. Vendors have supplied complex and costly solutions which fail to address real business drivers and goals. Yet the rewards can be vast and go well beyond better-informed decision-making, to facilitate continuous improvement and cost savings across the infrastructure. How can vendors, customers and the industry as a whole take a better approach? Find out on our webinar on Wednesday 15 July.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?
