Data Centre Real Estate
Data centre real estate is an emerging market for investment, especially in the Southeast Asia. There are currently 63.4 million square feet of data-center space globally, and another 4.3 million square feet under construction.
For one, data centers are expensive to build; land and construction cost ranges from $1,200 per square foot, according to research firm Green Street Advisors, to more than $2,000 per square foot, by some accounts.
A typical 500,000-square-foot warehouse, meanwhile, rang from $45 to $170 per square foot, according to a 2018 CBRE Report.
