Founder Dave Sabey started Sabey Corporation as a commercial real-estate and construction outfit, gaining prominence in Seattle and the PNW in the late ‘70s and ‘80s. Since that time, we’ve grown into something more. From building and operating data centers to investing in cutting-edge medical sciences, Sabey has evolved at pace with our team and leadership’s hunger to do more, learn more and be more.

Our Roots

Sabey Corporation

Sabey Corporation was founded in 1972 as a commercial real estate developer under the leadership of founder Dave Sabey. From this grew Sabey Construction and a subsequent radical expansion of prominence across the Puget Sound area and the larger Pacific Northwest.

The Tech Opportunity

Sabey Data Centers

Sabey Data Centers was born from being in the right place at the right time. One of our former tenants ran a data center in our building (now SDC Seattle, building 5). When the tenant vacated due to bankruptcy, the leadership saw an opportunity to launch the company in an entirely new direction. In 2010 Sabey Corporation partnered with National Real Estate Advisors to create Sabey Data Centers. Since that time, our portfolio has grown to six data center campuses, with more on the way.

Advances in Medical Science

Seattle Science Foundation & Optispan

Dave Sabey has always been passionate about science and research. That’s why Sabey has partnered with pioneers in the medical field to create visionary ventures. Seattle Science Foundation (here talk about the cutting-edge work that they do). Optispan  was created with the understanding that our biodata can affect our health and wellbeing long before any health issues arise. The Optispan team seeks to lengthen and enrich life with data-backed preventive care.

Boldly Investing in Tomorrow

The Future of Sabey Corp

Whether it’s the groundbreaking genetic work being accomplished at the Montana Ranch, or Sabey’s commitment to invest in Artificial Intelligence in our data centers and beyond, we have our eye on the future. Moving forward, guided by our rich history and driven by our values and the will to change the world for the better, Sabey will continue to evolve.
