About Washington State Data Center (1500 Jefferson)
In 2007, the State of Washington was seeking proposals from private developers for the financing and construction of a new office building and data center on its Capitol Campus in Olympia, WA. After a competitive selection process, the National Development Council was chosen to finance the project.
Using 63-20 bonds, NDC leased the land from the State of Washington and then worked with developer Wright Runstad to build the new facility. The state-of-the-art 199,000 square foot office complex and 110,000 square foot data center opened in late 2011. This project allowed for the consolidation of the state’s information technology services into one building, promoting efficiency and cost savings and opening up additional space for several state agency offices.
About The TOBY® AWARD
The Office Building of the Year (TOBY®) Award was created in 1985 by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) to salute excellence in the office building industry. Since then, it has grown into a notable and prestigious program that now recognizes more than just office buildings. As a result, its name was changed in 2010 to The Outstanding Building of the Year. Today it remains the most prestigious and highly celebrated program of its kind in commercial real estate, recognizing quality in commercial real estate buildings and rewarding excellence in building management.
