DALLAS-An IT solutions group, planning to bounce a mesh laser beam in the Downtown, has signed a five-year lease for datacenter space in 2323 Bryan St. The group has emptied shared class A space in the high rise for a phased-in takedown of up to 10,000 sf.

Zyterra Solutions plans to fill 2,000 sf on the seventh floor of the 26-story tower at 2323 Bryan St., owned by San Francisco-based Digital Realty Trust Inc., Hunter Elam, president of the six-year-old Zyterra, tells GlobeSt.com. The local firm has ticketed space on the sixth floor for added redundancy for a bank of corporate, financial, educational and municipal customers, which includes the cities of Dallas and Red Oak, south of Fort Worth.

Elam expects the initial 2,000 sf will be filled in eight months to a year. “We will move beyond that in the next business year,” he says. The move is now under way from shared space on the fourth floor. Zyterra also has rooftop space banked for its use, he adds.

Elam says similar leases are under negotiation with Digital Realty Trust for datacenter space in its Northern and Southern California buildings as well as Austin, Houston and San Antonio. Digital Realty Trust’s high-tech inventory includes ready-to-go, turnkey datacenter facilities in secure 24/7 settings for mission-critical applications. Zyterra’s direct lease takes the 477,107-sf 2323 Bryan St. to 82% occupancy. Its quoted rate is $15 per sf plus electric.

Elam says the firm is making plans to roll out the city’s first mesh laser beam, using a wireless technology that can lower installation costs to $30,000 versus $300,000 because it eliminates the need to lay fiber into structures. The LED-tuned technology is fully redundant, operates at the speed of lasers and is all mesh, according to Elam, who’s also planning to make it available in the Red Oak-Waxahachie area, where he estimates there are 30,000 customers in an un-served DSL pocket.
