AUSTIN-El Paso Global Networks, the telecommunications subsidiary of El Paso Corp. is opening a telecom hotel in Austin. It has taken 16,071 sf at 1905 E. Sixth St. in a 30,000-sf building outfitted for telecommunications services.

Matt Scoggins of Dallas-based Cawley International has represented El Paso Global. Duggan Realty Advisors, based in Dallas, has been represented by its broker, L.J. Erickson.

Erickson tells GlobeSt.com that the 30,000-sf building is now 100% leased. The other tenants are Enron Corp., Adelphia Communications Corp. and PF.Net.

El Paso Global, based in Houston, will use the building as a carrier hotel, which houses network carriers and service providers in a central location to facilitate direct cross-connections and to permit access to multiple local and long-haul networks.

Duggan Realty bought the building from Trammell Crow Co. in 2000. Erickson says it was well-suited for telecommunications: there are fiber lines on all sides, it has a 21-foot clear height and big floor-load capacity. Duggan made some improvements such as upgrading the power supply.

El Paso Global Networks offers wholesale products and services to the telecommunications marketplace. Its parent company, Houston-based El Paso Corp. is a natural gas company that had $21.9 billion in 2000 revenues.
