The first purpose-built data center project constructed in the city of San Francisco in more than 10 years.
Adjacent to 200 Paul Avenue one of the most densely connected internet gateways in the U.S.
Situated between the two major north-south fiber routes, which connect San Francisco to Silicon Valley.
Colocation and data center customers have multiple options for metro, long haul, international, and specialized services.
The property is 7.3 acres and is permitted for 24MW and 18x 2MW generators.


In partnership with fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty, CIM presents 400 Paul Avenue, a premier powered shell data center project in San Francisco, California. The facility will be the first purpose-built center in the city of San Francisco in over a decade. 400 Paul offers physical access to 12 MW of electrified utility connection, with an additional 12 MW utility feed committed by PG&E. This is a unique and competitive advantage over other Bay Area data centers, which must undertake lengthy processes with utilities to significantly expand service connection. The property also provides access to the densest fiber network of any datacenter location in the entire northern California market and a landing spot for traffic from Europe and Asia to the West Coast.
