Two of St. Louis’ biggest data centers sold to New York firm

Netrality Properties, a New York City-based company that owns and operates vital data center facilities across the country, has acquired half a million square feet of data center space from Digital Realty in a deal estimated to be worth at least $50 million.

The deal, which makes Netrality the largest data center operator in the region, includes two facilities: a 400,000-square-foot building at 210 N. Tucker Blvd. and a 100,000-square-foot facility at 900 Walnut St. The two buildings are among St. Louis’ most critical data center buildings and are frequently referred to as carrier hotels — those that serve as access points to the region’s long haul fiber networks thus connecting St. Louis to other places around the world either directly or indirectly.
