The 210 N. Tucker and 900 Walnut buildings come with carrier-neutral, owned and managed Meet-Me Rooms (MMRs). The former offers acess to 43 individual network providers, while the latter hosts 45 network providers.

“The acquisition of this portfolio enhances Netrality’s growing national footprint,” said Gerald Marshall, Netrality’s CEO.

“St. Louis is a key interconnection point for carriers, service providers and enterprise customers in the region.”

Digital Realty’s chief investment officer Scott Peterson added: “We appreciate the opportunity we have had to work with Netrality on their strategic acquisition of these St. Louis data centers.

“We also thank our operations team in St. Louis as well as the acquisitions team, who worked seamlessly with Netrality to facilitate the transaction and deliver on our capital recycling commitments.”

Netrality plans to integrate the two buildings and the 365 Data Centers’ facility under a single management framework.
