AT&T Data Center
The AT&T Regional Data Center (formerly the BellSouth Birmingham Data Center) is a large data center and administrative facility operated by AT&T South at 1876-1890 Data Drive in Hoover. It was built for BellSouth in 1976 and houses the utility's billing, installation, maintenance and repair departments, as well as infrastructure for 911 emergency services.
In 2002 the 920,000-square-foot center housed 365 BellSouth employees and 1,400 contract workers. That year BellSouth broke ground on a $60 million expansion, primarily to house new back-up generators and mechanical and electrical equipment. Giattina Fisher Aycock designed the addition, which was constructed by Brasfield & Gorrie.
