Morgan Stanley – Heathrow

Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 00.06.13Just to the east of Heathrow Airport, on the Heathrow Corporate Park, is a huge data centre   operated by the bank Morgan Stanley. The building is opposite Sunward AS’s facility, but looks to be twice as large – it’s the largest data centre I’ve come across so far.

According to this article in Property Week, Morgan Stanley took over the facility in 2003.

An administration block faces the road with a huge shed containing data halls behind it with cooling and generators alongside it. The block has a lot of reflective green glazing.

The building has no corporate signage, with the only sign (above) saying Unit D. The company is not even mentioned on the signage for the business park.

From the park alongside the sheer scale of the building is fully evident.
