WHO WE ARE WHO WE ARE WHO WE ARE WHO WE ARE

a different
kind of landlord

a different
kind of landlord

We’re not traditional landlords or conventional finance people. We’re problem solvers. Service providers. Innovators. We develop, own and operate the infrastructure for modern life, including data centers, logistics and life sciences facilities. With deep expertise in how technology and data are transforming these sectors we are able to uniquely address our tenants’ real estate challenges.

OUR PHILOSOPHY OUR PHILOSOPHY OUR PHILOSOPHY OUR PHILOSOPHY

we view real estate through a different lens

We understand that modern infrastructure facilities are warehouse-scale machines and we know how these machines work from the inside out. We don’t simply see isolated buildings but highly networked and entangled technological systems that form the connective tissue of business operations. As buildings become increasingly impacted by technical systems and performance metrics, we believe it’s imperative to understand these dynamics and be able to manage them to meet tenants’ needs.

HERE’S
WHAT
WE
CAN DO
FOR YOU

we are highly
creative problem solvers

To create real value for our clients and partners requires a deep understanding of their needs and having the creativity and capabilities to unlock potential. Companies rely on real estate for their production and distribution networks and we know that a facility optimized to a tenants’ data, processes and protocols propels business forward. That’s why we don’t just offer space, but provide services that enable our tenants to optimize their site locations, building specifications, equipment and operations with the support of our capital

  • REAL ESTATE

    We are a fully integrated real estate platform that goes beyond the traditional investment framework to deliver comprehensive financial, technical and building solutions. Our unique perspective allows us to look beyond the spreadsheet and solve for true performance to meet our tenants needs.

  • TECHNOLOGY

    As buildings become more technologically advanced you need a partner who fully understands the technology crucial to your operation. We know how to design, create, and adapt space to support and enhance these systems.

  • INVESTING

    We focus on real estate across the U.S. and Europe that’s being fundamentally impacted by new technologies. We leverage our extensive understanding of technology to determine how these properties will impact tenant demand, site selection and leasing. We capture long-term real estate value by positioning these properties to meet those needs.

We see value
differently

Our portfolio reflects our depth of understanding. We have the market knowledge, analytical skills, and foresight to identify the true value of a property.

As a result, our portfolio is full of investments that deliver outsized value—and hold their value—even as technologies and market conditions continue to shift and evolve.

TEAM

We’ve been where
you are now

Our leadership team hasn't always been in real estate. We were tenants once, too. We had corporate real estate and finance responsibilities, and we fully understand what it’s like to sit on that side of the table. We know what goes into the complex business and operating decisions companies have to make, and the problems they are working to solve.

Having been founded by two tech entrepreneurs, we also have deep technology and innovation DNA. As buildings become more and more technologically advanced, you need a team who has expertise in the new technologies that are driving today’s business functions. You need a team that isn’t just limited to the four walls but who fully grasps what goes on inside them. And that’s exactly who we are.
