By Chris Petersen

There may be no better metaphor for the progress communication technology has made over the last century than what is going on at 60 Hudson Street in Manhattan. The former headquarters of Western Union is undergoing a massive $100 million transformation into a modern data network hub courtesy of DataGryd Data Centers. The leader in data center development and operations in Manhattan, DataGryd is transforming the Art Deco building into the most sophisticated and flexible data center in Manhattan, and founder and CEO Peter Feldman says the end-result should be a major step forward for the company and telecommunications on the island as a whole.

DataGryd was founded in 2011, when it leased four floors at 60 Hudson Street and began upgrading those floors to accommodate the infrastructure needed to host data centers for customers. Today, the company occupies space on over nine floors of the building, and the company’s latest upgrade of the building is its most ambitious to date.
