Recent News & Updates
Digital Realty to dispose non-core data center property
Digital Realty (NYSE:DLR) is selling a non-core, mixed-use data center property in a transaction which would value the asset at ~$205M. The deal is expected to close in the third quarter of 2022. Proceeds from the deal will initially be used to pay down debt and will ultimately be used to fund future investment activity. The data center-focused REIT acquired the 370K sq ft facility in 2004, prior to its IPO. The property is expected to generate cash net operating income of ~$10.7M in 2022, representing a 5.2% cap rate. Digital Realty Chief Investment Officer Greg Wright noted, "This disposition opportunistically recycles an operationally mature asset to fund strategic investments aimed at enhancing our longer-term growth profile. Since 2018, Digital Realty has sold approximately $4B of assets and redeployed proceeds into highly connected facilities around the world, providing our customers with a global, full spectrum data center solution."
