Tampa-based Carter Validus Mission Critical Real Estate Investment Trust said it paid $45.9 million to buy the Atos Data Center on south Bowen Road in Arlington and the InterNAP Data Center in Plano.
Both properties are fully leased. The deal closed Aug. 16.
The Atos property was sold by Behringer Harvard real estate firm in Dallas. It had owned the property since 2007. The campus includes an 87,000-square-foot building on 14 acres of developable land at 5000 S. Bowen Road.
The Plano property is at 1221 Coit Road.
The Atos Data Center serves as the current tenant’s primary data center facility in the U.S., the new owner said. The tenant operates an international IT service company that delivers hi-tech transactional, consulting and technology services, system integration and managed services to a global client base.
“Given the properties’ desirable locations and long term leases with high-quality tenants, we believe that the Texas Data Center Portfolio is a great addition to our portfolio of mission critical real estate,” said CEO John Carter.
Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT said it intends to acquire mission critical real estate assets located throughout the U.S. The company defines mission critical real estate assets as purpose-built facilities designed to support the most essential operations of tenants. Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT focuses its acquisitions of mission critical assets in the data center and healthcare sectors, the company said.
In Texas, it also owns buildings in Richardson and Austin, and in Oklahoma, Michigan, Georgia and Missouri.
