Data center for sale in Wisconsin

In the Fitchburg area of Maidson, real estate firm Cresa is offering 5520 Research Park Drive for auction. The auction is set to begin on April 15; the starting bid is $800,000.

Built in 1998 and set on 3.6 acres in the Fitchburg Research Park, the building features 42,000 sq ft of office space spread across two stories and 8,000 sq ft of “former data center space.”

According to Cresa, the vacant site comes with a backup generator and six fiber carriers coming into the building.

Cresa said the property is suited to “fit the needs of an investor or owner/user with optionality to accommodate prospective businesses.”

“5520 Research Park Drive offers investors the rare opportunity to acquire flexible office space and a data center with upside via lab conversion,” the listing said. “This property presents new ownership with an immensely flexible building that can fit any business, office, or research needs.”

The site, located in Dane County, was previously occupied by CDW Corporation; the company took over the property when it acquired Berbee Information Networks in 2006. It’s unclear when the company exited the property.

An SEC filing from 2013 suggests CDW was leasing the site, but didn’t name the landlord.

Former Alorica outsourcing facility up for sale in Nebraska

In Omaha, CBRE is offering 9910 Maple Street for auction. The auction is set to begin on April 14; the starting bid is $600,000.

Built in 1986 and set on 4.3 acres, the two-story building is described as a 43,479 sq ft office property with private offices, wide-open workspaces, training rooms, and data center space.

The size of the data center hasn’t been shared, but the property comes with a generator installed.

The property is currently leased to outsourcing firm Alorica, which has vacated the space but is paying rent through October 2024.

“This provides new ownership with a steady income stream while looking to backfill the asset with another tenant or to prepare the property for a new owner/user operation,” the listing said.
