IBB's POP is the other end of the park. As far as I can make out Park West
has "light industrial" purpose buildings like where InterXction is and
office buildings here H365 are.

there were still power issues up that end of the park. Even with well less
than 100% occupancy in the office space the ESB were still trying
to adequately meter and reduce the load. However the most recent issue here
does not appear to be related as there was power in all the other offices
suring the outage.
