STERLING, VA-San Francisco-based Digital Realty Trust, Inc. has acquired two fully leased datacenter properties in Northern Virginia, along with a 10.73-acre site for $63.3 million. One property, 45901 &45845 Nokes Blvd., is locally based, totaling approximately 167,000 rentable square feet. It is leased to a managed service provider. The second property, 21561 & 21571 Beaumeade Circle, is in nearby Ashburn, VA, and totals over 164,000 rentable square feet. It is leased to a communications company. Adjacent to the Beaumeade Circle property is the 10.73-acre land parcel, which can support up to 140,000 square feet of new datacenter development.

These transactions, which closed at the end of December, are part of Digital Realty Trust’s strategy to grow FFO by investing in income producing facilities in top tier markets,” according to Scott Peterson, SVP of Acquisitions. The new datacenters are located near the REIT’s existing Northern Virginia facilities and leased to existing DLR customers, expanding the company’s footprint in Northern Virginia to 1.2 million rentable square feet.
