Sector: Industrial Data Centre
Location: London, United Kingdom
The historical value of data centres and the projected future trends of data-storage needs for multiple industries, measured against the constraints that limit effective data-storage creation, suggest that prime-located data storage centres may be one of the fastest value growth segments of real estate in the medium and long term development.
Country Group Development PCL., took the opportunity to secure Anchorage Point, a 2,300 square metre data centre with a 33-year freehold lease and an existing tenant in an off-market transaction for its key location in London; one of the top five areas in the Greater EU for both demand and connectivity to the most centralised part of the regional communications infrastructure.
As of December 2015, Country Group Development PCL., has exited and sold the investment to MFC Industrial Real Estate Investment Trust (MIT), Thailand’s first international Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT).
