Located at 900 North Alameda in downtown Los Angeles, Wilshire Annex is a large datacenter facility totaling 450,000 square feet spread over five floors. Wilshire Annex is structured as a partnership between The Carlyle Group and Euristates, Inc.

The owner desired to use existing concrete tunnels beneath the structure to run new communications networking cable. Ellis made the preliminary hazard assessment of these tunnels and found damaged pipe insulation (among other hazards). Ellis procured bids for and managed the cleanup of these tunnels in 2008. Routing of new cables through the cleaned tunnels began in late summer.
