A 6MW data center is up for sale or lease in Phoenix, Arizona.
CBRE is listing 20435 North 26th Avenue as available for sale or lease in the Deer Valley area of the city. No price was published.
Built in 2003 and sat on 3.66 acres, the 6MW single-story data center offers 25,000 sq ft (2,320 sqm) of raised floor across a 54,655 sq ft (5,075 sqm) property.
According to the sales brochure, the facility offers two 6MW feeds across two data halls., and two 2.25MW Caterpillar backup generators. Verizon and Lumen are fiber providers to the data center.
While unconfirmed, it seems the facility was previously occupied by supermarket chain Safeway.
Several websites list the address as a Safeway location, and some names affiliated with the address are for IT positions at Safeway and its subsidiary the Vons Companies Inc. The company has offices in Phoenix, and LinkedIn job profiles suggest the company had IT operations in Deer Valley as well as Pleasanton, California.
Founded in the 1960s, Safeway has some 900 stores across the US. The company was purchased by Albertsons Companies in 2014. Albertsons is undergoing a $24.6 billion acquisition by Kroger in a deal announced last year; however, the deal was rejected by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) in March of this year.
