Tri-State Data Center Real Estate & Infrastructure Executives to Convene for Information & Networking Summit

Regional Acquisitions Suggest New Wave of Buying, Selling and Repositioning of Existing Assets  -- Learn More on November 29


In 2011, there have been two significant data center acquisitions in the Tri-State. IO acquired a former New York Times printing plant in Edison, NJ with plans to reposition the asset for modular data centers. Additionally, Sabey Data Center Properties acquired the Verizon central office building in Lower Manhattan with plans to reposition to historic phone building to Integrate.Manhattan, a state-of-the art data center.

Both acquisitions highlight significant changes as data infrastructure becomes increasingly vital for all aspects of consumer and business communications. These acquisitions highlight the potential for significant growth in data center investment in the Tri-State, which will be the focus of the inaugural Greater New York Data Center Summit on November 29.

More about this event: The IO and Sabey acquisitions in Edison, NJ and Lower Manhattan, respectively, could be the beginning of a new wave of traditional data center owners’ investments in undperforming assets. Additionally, owners of other property types (office, industrial, retail) may consider data center exposure as consumer and business demands for quality and reliable data storage will increase in the coming years.

Key Point: With modifications to existing buildings that include technology upgrades, new data centers could fill the vacant space that has lingered since the start of the recession in late 2007.

The Greater New York Data Center Summit is a timely event for this region and the commercial real estate and technology executives who work in this space, and those who want to learn more about the burgeoning opportunities.

Agenda Coverage:
• What are the unique types of debt capital available for data center investment, development and repositioning of existing assets?
• Who are the most active equity players and what are their return requirements?
• What are the unique data center demands of the region’s financial firms in today’s environment?
• How is the demand for data center and storage capacity, driven by consumer and business patterns likely to change in the next 5-10 years?

Additional Agenda Coverage:
• How can commercial real estate executives and data center owners work more effectively with end-users?
• Following recent development and construction, is the Tri-State’s data center supply adequately meeting demand?
• Where is new development and repositioning of existing assets likely to occur in the next 5 years: New Jersey or New York City?
• Why are investors and developers now considering Manhattan for new data centers?
• What are the unique management and operations requirements of data centers?
• Analysis and review of Greater New York data center capitalization rates and market fundamentals
