Newport is New Jersey’s first ‘Smart City’

For today’s global businesses, speed, connectivity and security provide an enormous competitive advantage. That’s why 111 Town Square Place (111 TSP) in Jersey City, operated by LeFrak Commercial, created New Jersey’s first “Smart City.”

111 TSP has become one of the nation’s top telecom facilities and the hub of choice for Northern NJ’s tech-reliant companies. The Newport network infrastructure greatly increases office tenants ability to connect to new and enhanced network services.

The 111 TSP communications infrastructure includes fiber optic cabling and increased access to networks for enhanced global connectivity, which serves as a gateway to an extensive number of diverse and redundant carrier networks, serving the Newport community, NJ Metro area and New York City. With extensive mission critical building features that include dedicated MEP Infrastructure, three UPS plants, with one as a back up, rooftop emergency backup generators, carrier-neutral connectivity companies in the Newport community have access to numerous high-speed connectivity options that enable their tenants access to the Internet.

Newport, a several hundred acre, multi-use building community that includes eight high rise office towers in excess of 5 million square feet, with Fortune 500 clients, has been dubbed a “Smart City,” as a result, and several of the commercial buildings are now connected together. Each has direct access to 111 TSP’s data center hub and its girth of local and global connectivity. Some of the key buildings interconnected throughout Newport include 111 Town Square Place, 100 Town Square Place, 545 Washington Boulevard, and 499 Washington Boulevard: all of which are available for immediate enhanced network connectivity.

Hudson Fiber Network, based in Paramus, is a  data transport provider offering high-bandwidth, low-latency networking solutions and is the exclusive fiber provider for LeFrak Commercial’s properties in Northern NJ, including 111 TSP.

“111 TSP is one of the smartest buildings in Northern NJ and serves as the hub of the Newport community and surrounding metropolitan areas powering a truly ‘Connected City,’ comments Ray Kawas, Director of Sales and Leasing for 111 TSP. “This ‘Connected City’ enables businesses throughout the Newport area ubiquitous access to critical space, power and connectivity.”

“Until now, companies seeking Class A office space in Northern NJ had few options on where to locate so they could be in close proximity to leading colocation sites that give them the local and global connectivity they require. 111 TSP is a hub for tech-savvy tenants,” adds Brett Diamond, HFN CEO. “Leading real estate companies like LeFrak Commercial understand that advanced network infrastructure is critical in attracting and retaining today’s tech-focused tenants.”

“Newport offers companies requiring highly reliable infrastructure to provide best in class global communications,” says Marylou Berk, Senior Vice President, Head of Commercial Real Estate at LeFrak Commercial.
