Governor Kay Ivey also attended the ribbon-cutting in the historic neighborhood. “This facility will serve as a bub for data applications, devices and content, and not only will it provide actual worksapce, but it will provide the high-density power that’s necessary to power network infrastructure.”

This is phase one for DC BLOX in Titusville, which will deliver up to 5MW of power, 18,000 square feet of white space and 13,000 square feet of office space, featuring conference rooms, demo space, hoteling cubes and workstations, according to a company press release.
