Digital Realty Trust Appoints Jones Lang LaSalle Leasing Agent at 100 & 200 Quannapowitt Parkway


BOSTON, August 12, 2009 — Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: DLR) has named Jones Lang LaSalle leasing agent at 100 & 200 Quannapowitt Parkway in Wakefield, MA. The 387,000 square foot first class office and technology center directly on Route 128 overlooks Lake Quannapowitt.
 
Site of the former American Mutual Insurance Company, the park combines modern, efficient flex space with maximum corporate exposure and direct access to Route 128. The two buildings offer spectacular views of the lake, mature woodlands, jogging trails, a cafeteria operated by ARAMARK, fitness center, men’s and women’s locker rooms and showers, and a basketball court for employees. There is structured and surface parking on-site for 672 vehicles with a high ratio of 4 spaces per 1,000 square feet. The park is located within minutes of Route 93. Both the North Avenue and Route 129 entrances to the park have direct access to Route 128.
 
Building 100, built in 1999, is a four-story 168,000 square foot first class office building in a richly landscaped setting featuring a modern glass and precast Efis façade, quality finishes, and an atrium lobby with seating area. Building 200 was initially built as a landmark building with high corporate standards for American Mutual. Subsequently the building was repositioned and leased to Comverse when Building 100 was constructed. Today it is a high performance 2-story 219,000 square foot mixed use technology and office facility with fully redundant power, executive conference room, heavy floor load capacity, and 11-1/2’-plus clear height. There are 6,345 square feet of raised flooring, and another approximately 40,000 square feet are planned. Digital Realty Trust will deliver customized turn-key data center space in 10,000 square foot increments as part of its proprietary Gating Process.
 
“This is a flexible, reliable, and attractive business destination,” said Walter Greaney, Senior Asset Manager for Digital Realty Trust. “We’ve selected Jones Lang LaSalle because of their success in the Route 128 market, and technology specialty practice. Together with our extensive experience in technology-related real estate, we are confident that the asset will attract a high caliber of tenants.”
 
According to Tamie Thompson, Managing Director at Jones Lang LaSalle: “Companies will benefit from 100 & 200 Quannapowitt’s picturesque setting and convenient access. Digital Realty Trust has a proven track record of providing state-of-the-art solutions efficiently and cost-effectively, and the financial strength to capitalize on the park’s significant upside.”
 
Working with Tamie on the marketing will be Senior Vice President Dan Cordeau, Vice President Greg Zais, and Assistant Vice President Dan Kollar.
