SAN FRANCISCO-Digital Realty Trust is picking up some steam in Dublin, Ireland. The locally based communications REIT has just acquired an additional asset there and begun construction for another facility on land that came along with a prior acquisition.

The latest acquisition is Unit 9 within Blanchardstown Corporate Park in Dublin. The purchase price was $46.92 million (36.3 million euros). Unit 9 is a 120,000-sf datacenter facility that is 90% leased and was already being managed by Digital Realty Trust.

The building under construction also is a 120,000-sf datacenter. The facility is being built on 2.6 acres the company owns in the Clonshaugh Industrial Estate. The land came with its it early-2006 acquisition of a 20,000-sf datacenter facility within the Estate.

Including the facility under construction, Digital Realty CEO Michael Foust says the company now has approximately 1 million sf in seven properties in Europe, which he describes as a growth market for the company. The remainder of the company’s 11.5 million-sf portfolio is located in the US.
