Kennedy Wilson Offers Comcast Business Class for Tenants

By Carolyn J Dawson, TMCnet Contributor

Comcast (News - Alert) Corporation is one of the country’s leading providers of entertainment, information and communications products and services. The company recently announced that Kennedy Wilson, an international real estate firm will be providing high-speed Internet, voice and cable television from Comcast Business Class in order to support its tenants' advanced communications needs who are located in Denver.

Kennedy Wilson will now be providing its tenants at the El Dorado Ridge office park in Broomfield, Colorado with Metro Ethernet Services from Comcast Business Class. The office park is currently made up of three facilities that when combined amount to approximately 326,000 square feet. El Dorado Ridge II is the also the first building to receive Comcast Business Class services and plans have been made to expand to the other two buildings towards the end of  2011.

In a release, Mike Pepper, managing director at Kennedy Wilson Group said that "I expect that the rollout of Comcast Business Class will give our building a competitive advantage over other multi-tenant office buildings in the greater Denver market. A good portion of our tenants are technology-savvy, high-bandwidth users. After negotiating rental rates and terms with the landlord, their very next question is 'Tell us about telecom services,' so having Comcast high-speed communications in our building will give us an advantage and give tenants the flexibility to choose from multiple providers."

Terry Connell, Senior Vice President for Comcast Business Services said that "As organizations increasingly adopt technologies such as cloud computing, Software-as-a-Service and business continuity/disaster recovery, a highly-reliable network with scalable bandwidth capabilities is no longer a luxury but a business-critical necessity. As a prominent international real estate firm with locations across the nation, Kennedy Wilson understands the strategic value of providing high-quality communications services and the importance of providing the flexibility of choice to its tenants."

Kennedy Wilson was founded in 1977and offers a large array of real estate services, including auction, conventional sales, property services and investment management. The company is a strategic investor of real estate investments in the U.S., Europe and Japan through its fund management and separate account businesses.
