(Tampa, FL) (August 20, 2012) — Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT, Inc. announced today that it has acquired a portfolio of mission critical data center properties for an aggregate purchase price of $45,900,000.
The Texas Data Center Portfolio includes two properties: the Atos Data Center located in Arlington, TX and the InterNAP Data Center located in Plano, TX. Both properties are 100% leased and are located in the technology corridor of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the nation’s six largest data center market according to the Office of Economic Development.
The Atos Data Center serves as the current tenant’s primary data center facility in the United States. This 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.
