55 Marietta Street – Atlanta’s Premier Data Center & Carrier Hotel

Serving the Southeast’s largest concentration of telecommunications companies, 55 Marietta Street Carrier Hotel is a 21-story, 89.9 m. (295 ft.) tall office building skyscraper in Atlanta, Georgia.

Atlanta is a major interconnection point between Florida and New York. Our Downtown Atlanta data center facility sits next to most of our telecommunications clients’ fiber. As a result, businesses have more choices for carrier-neutral interconnection, colocation and data center access from this location compared to others in the region.

55 Marietta Street complies with or exceeds International Telecommunication Union (ITU) industry standards.
