CIM Group Sells Portfolio of Four Data Center Assets

11/2/2021

LOS ANGELES--CIM Group announced today that it has sold a portfolio of four data centers in Illinois, New York, and Wyoming to a joint venture between Harrison Street Real Estate Capital, LLC and fifteenfortyseven Critical Systems Realty (“1547”).

Located in Chicago, Illinois; Orangeburg, New York; and Cheyenne, Wyoming, the portfolio assets comprise more than 560,000 square feet of well-located data center space offering abundant fiber connectivity in leading data center markets in the U.S.

“Under CIM Group’s ownership, this portfolio has become stabilized and has substantially increased in value. These assets benefited from CIM’s sourcing, in-house operational expertise, and the team’s focused management and ability to assess and implement property modifications and additions,” said Avi Shemesh, Co-Founder and Principal, CIM Group.

1547 previously served as CIM’s joint venture partner in the portfolio. CIM continues to own and operate data center properties in San Francisco, California and Toronto, Ontario in partnership with 1547. In addition, in 2020 CIM Group made a major commitment to Novva to share in its development of a 1.5-million-square-foot data center campus in Utah and other campuses.
