All of our sites and buildings are served by modern natural gas, public water and sanitary sewer, and very reliable power and telecommunications, including fiber. Our two largest developments, East Mountain Corporate Center and CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park, are especially utility strong. A few highlights about the utilities in those parks are as follows:
East Mountain Corporate Center
Our premier suburban office park, East Mountain Corporate Center, is served by very reliable power and telecommunications. Electrical service within the park is provided by PPL Electric Utilities through underground primary and secondary distribution facilities. PPL’s East Mountain substation is located immediately adjacent to the park.
The substation has two independently supplied 69/12.47KV, 10MVA, step-down transformers. Each transformer in turn supplies a nominal 12.47KV bus section, which is connected through a normally closed bus tie breaker. As a result, the loss of either 69KV transmission feed to the substation or either transformer will not result in any service interruptions.
Verizon, Level 3, Frontier Communications, Comcast, and Earthlink all serve the park. Services available include local, regional and long distance telephone, high-speed Internet, T-1 lines, T-3 lines, OC3 to OC196, ISDN, DSL, frame relays, and LAN/WAN services.
CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park
Mericle’s largest development is CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park, a mixed-use 1,800 acre business park located near Pittston, less than one mile from both I-81 and I-476. CenterPoint is considered by many to be the fastest growing business park in Pennsylvania.
Comcast Business has made one of its most significant infrastructure investments to bring its national, private fiber-optic network to every existing building at CenterPoint and to those parcels that are construction ready under Mericle’s ReadyToGo!™ Program. That means companies can access secure, scalable, high-performance dedicated internet, and point-to-point and multi-point connectivity — optimized for businesses with multiple locations — within 30 days of order. Comcast Business enterprise solutions deliver symmetrical bandwidth that scale from 50 Mbps up to 10 Gbps, enabling businesses of all sizes to choose from a comprehensive portfolio of services (data, voice, and video) as well as Ethernet services — all of which feature proactive network and service monitoring 24 x 7 x 365 from Comcast’s dedicated Network Operations Centers. In addition, Comcast can also provide back-up and disaster recovery services for redundancy needs and has a local support team located just minutes from CenterPoint.
