If it was a "Bell" class CO, the walls next to where you could park were
almost certainly rated to withstand a specific size of car-bomb going off.
Several of the telco COs and/or data-centers I have worked with had
parking structures up against one wall.  But that wall was reinforced
because of it.

It's cheaper to use air to dissipate the blast than concrete though.  :-)
