Technical Real Estate buys Acxiom Data Centre



Facility sits on a 4.4-acre piece of land.

UK-based Technical Real Estate (TechRE) has acquired a data centre from Acxiom Data Centre in Normanton, South Yorkshire, England.

The facility sits in a piece of land measuring 4.4 acres and the data centre building has a total of 32,000 sqf.

The new owners have said the land has enough space to build the necessary infrastructure to provide 100% renewable power from a combined solar and battery storage system.

According to TechRE, the building is currently let in its entirety to Acxiom and generates an annual rental income in excess of £210,000.

Roger Telford, Director at Telford Property Consultants who co-ordinated the acquisition for TechRE, said: “The Normanton facility met key investment criteria in terms of tenant profile, length of lease and critically the technical specification.

“The buyer was attracted by clear asset management strategies, the opportunity to develop a strategic relationship with the tenant and overall technical specification, all underpinned by a location that is growing as a regional data-centre hub.”
